Meet Piper Strassburg, who has the ingredients for love and joy at TG's Urangan!
Piper´s Ingredients for Happiness:
Love and accept yourself fully and live for yourself!
Cooking with Love
Every one of our educators has a loving memory from their childhood which they bring with them to TG's Family and share with the children and families.
For Piper, that is spending hours in the kitchen with her grandmother baking yummy treats. Being in the loving presence of a caring adult, getting one's hands "dirty" playing with natural ingredients full of textures and smells, creating something beautiful and delicious and the simple bonding between two people is a gift.
And that is what Piper is passing on to the children at TG's.
She loves building relationships with the children while cooking and listening to their excited chatter and quirky questions, much like how her grandmother spent time with little Piper. What is a fun activity for the children is a rich opportunity to explore, get curious, experiment; and the best part is, the activity ends with some happy tummies!
When it comes to food and cooking, TG's children have the added special delight of harvesting natural ingredients straight from TG's beautiful gardens. And these vegetable and fruit plants have been tended to by the children themselves! This is TG´s very own, unique, mini "farm-to-fork" sustainability concept, and the children love it!
Grow, Cook, Eat is the inspiring book TG's children would write about one day!
The Drive of Youth
Piper is 19 and she has already had 5 years of hospitality experience, as well as having finished school with 3 completed qualifications at the same time. The amazing drive of youth!
We are so proud of Piper's tenacity and determination, and even more delighted that she is here to share her gifts with us!
Seeing the World
Piper moved around Queensland when she was growing up and she dreams of having the superpowers of teleportation so she can go anywhere and travel for free!
But Piper would always return anytime to do what she loves most - cooking and spending time with her family enjoying good food, and taking Ivy to the beach so she can paddle in the water and getting her doggy paws sandy from running freely by the shore!
We welcome Piper to our evergrowing TG's Family where she is now part of a tight-knit group of educators!
