Michele New

Michele plays the valued role as one of our Public Fund Managers but her involvement with the EcoCentre does not start and end there. Taking the position as one of our very first Treasurers, Michele set a great precedent within this vital function for the organisation and finished up in 2004. Before creating her beautiful family of five, Michele was employed within the financial sector and also holds Undergraduate and Post Graduate qualifications. Michele had the dedication to homeschool her middle son for more then five years and to add subsequent strings to her bow she is now also a Yoga Instructor!  Michele and her family are committed to an ecofriendly way of life; with her kids spending so much time at the EcoCentre that they call the St Kilda Botanical Gardens – “Neil’s Park”. 

The EcoCentre acknowledges the Kulin Nations, including the Yalukut Weelam clan of the Boon Wurrung language group, traditional owners of the land on which we are located.

We pay respects to their Elders past and present, and extend that respect to other Aboriginal and Elder members of our multicultural community.
