Costa Georgiadis – The Greek God Of Gardening

By Dan Hutton on April 25, 2012 in People

Photo: Andrew Goldie

During the month The Beast caught up with gardening guru, compost king and hirsute host of Gardening Australia, Costa Georgiadis…

Where are you originally from?

I was born in St Margaret’s Hospital on Crown Street here in Sydney. I grew up in North Bondi and I pretty much lived there all my life. I went and studied landscape architecture at UNSW after school and then I worked for about 12 months and saved up my money, because my goal was to travel the world. So I hit the road to Europe and I ended up living there for three years and then for the next few years I came back here in December, just before Christmas, I stayed here till the end of Feb and then went back to Europe and worked from late Feb, once winter was lifting, through till December. I had about three or four years without a winter, which was kind of cool. And I was probably away for six or seven years.

Being a second-generation Australian of Greek heritage, had you been over to Greece before as a kid?

Yeah, as a 15 year old my parents put me into this Greece trip for Greek Australian kids to go over and see Greece. I went over there for about eight weeks and I realised when I was over there that I could speak Greek. I was with other friends from here in Sydney – same sort of thing, second-generation kids – who couldn’t speak Greek. I was ringing up their relatives and saying, “Theo’s here, he wants to come and meet you” and I’d go there and I was the interpreter. I’ll never forget it. I came home and I said to my parents, “Thank you for making me learn Greek” because it was hard back then. When I was a kid in primary school having to go to wog school, I was getting paid out heavily. After school you’re supposed to be going out playing with your friends but I had to walk the gauntlet down the street with kids yelling, “Oh, you’re going to wog school, you’re going to wog school.”

Did your folks speak any Greek at home?

We spoke it with my grandparents and we spoke it with certain aunts and relatives, but day to day for me and my sister we spoke English and then Greek where required.

Where are you living these days?

At the moment I’m back at home with my dad, living in my family home where I grew up in North Bondi.

What do you love about living in the Eastern Suburbs?

I think what I love most about the Eastern Suburbs is just the sheer diversity of people. Everywhere you go it’s just a mix. And above that I reckon the biggest privilege of living around here is that you’ve got world class beaches that you can just roll up to on a work day. People in the rest of the world save up their holidays to go to the beach for a week and I can work all day and fumble down to Bondi or Bronte for a swim on dusk. I get out and I feel like I’ve been on a holiday and I’m right in the heart of the city.

Is there anything you don’t like?

What gets my goat is the way that the whole real estate reality has just blown into such a bubble that people are running around and they miss what’s actually here. The real estate’s on the surface, the landscape is what we need to appreciate. People are so busy running around to support a paper stack that they forget what they’ve actually got, and on a world scale it doesn’t get much better. I reckon we’re bloody lucky here.

How did you become a gardener, because I thought a Greek garden involved backing up a cement truck and letting rip?

Yeah, with a bit of green paint and lots of pots on top. I tell you, my childhood has seen many hours spent observing such gardens and also seeing the other extreme with the full blown, crazy Greek jungles. It’s funny because the more I get asked questions like this the more I remember these gardens of my childhood. Everywhere I’d go as a kid, people recognised plants, and they were constantly snapping things off and saying, “Take some of this,” or “Here, take a pot of that.” They really valued living things. I can’t tell you how many gardens I trundled through as a kid. I’d be standing there seeing my grandfather giving people this, giving them that, showing them what to do with the manure and how to paint some lime on to the trunk of a lemon tree. So yeah, that’s where it all started.

Tell us about the project you’ve got going on in your street?

The project is pretty much based on the fact that I go around the country telling people they’ve got to do things locally and that can deal with the big problems. So I thought if I’m banging on around the country trying to inspire people and telling them that this is what they’ve got to do, I thought, hold the phone buddy, why don’t you walk the walk in your own community? So I said okay, I’m going to turn my verge into a community garden and then it can be a model and inspire the street and slowly little satellite verges will hopefully pop up until we fill the whole street and turn it into a living, breathing, edible flower, veggie and fruit garden.

Were council happy to get on board?

Council have been really supportive and they love it because council want community and the best vehicles of community are the people within it. And the best part about the garden is that as people watch it grow they are freaking out. They cannot believe that in six weeks I could literally harvest a whole laundry tub full of mixed salad greens that could feed half the street. If we can roll this out and inspire people to use that space, council doesn’t have to have a gang of people mowing grass wastelands and spraying them with chemicals.

How would you recommend other people in the Eastern Suburbs go about making their own verge garden?

The simplest thing you can do regarding your own verge is to simply get on the council website and fill out a verge application. Just tell them what you want to do, start small and then talk to some other people and get them to help you. Just get going and then watch what it does. People will stop and you will suddenly realise how many people are walking up and down your street. They will stop and they’ll go: “What are you doing? Oh, that’s fantastic. Oh, I think I might do it myself.” So you will actually become a role model.

Do you have any other equally consuming passions as gardening?

Yeah, there are probably two that you mightn’t know about. Firstly, I referee rugby – a lot of young people’s rugby, schools and under 19s, under 20s. I just love it. I love the running around; it keeps me fit. I know an incredible number of people around the area just because I’ve been reffing them since they were kids and it’s a really nice thing. For me my rugby refereeing is meditation. I turn up and for that 70 or 80 minutes the world is turned off and all I’m focused on is what’s happening on the field. I find it incredibly relaxing. The other passion is the band that I’ve had with some friends from school, since school, and we do an annual gig called Beardstock. We do it down at the North Bondi RSL and we’ve done about 12 of them. It’s a crazy funk, disco, rock, cabaret catharsis that does everything from Prince, Chili Peppers, Hot Chocolate, James Brown, Cameo – all sorts of mad covers. What I love about it is we’re not doing it to pay the rent. We do it as a once a year gig and just turn the place upside down. It’s just crazy.

What’s the band called?

The More Please Orchestra.

What do you play?

My role is the quiet, unassuming, reserved person that stands at the front, and some may say sing, yodel, yell, squeal, jump up and down and play a little bit of sax on the side. When I pan the river of my life the gold chunks will be some of the More Please gigs.

How did your show, ‘Costa’s Garden Odyssey’, come about?

My good mate from school Sean Kennedy and I, when I went off and did landscape architecture he was studying film and doco making. For years we’d been talking about doing something but he was busy doing his docos and I was off here, there and everywhere. Strangely enough, a phone call came from a friend of ours who had been in TV, another Bondi girl, Dianne Smith, and she rang up and said, “I know that there’s a production company looking for someone to be on a lifestyle garden show, will I give them your number?” And I said, “Oh, yeah, why not, we’ll have a crack.” They rang me up, sent a camera crew around to film me working on this job where I was harvesting water and they shot some stuff and said, “Yep, that’s good, we’ll call you.” About 14 months later the production company rang me up and said SBS were interested, so we went in, had a chat with the production company, then we made a sizzle reel and pitched the show and the rest was history.

And so how many episodes of Odyssey did you do?

We did 25.

Is that on hold now that you’ve started with Gardening Australia on ABC?

Yeah, but odysseys never end and I left SBS as comfortably and as amicably as the day I began. I loved it there. They just weren’t in a position at this time to continue but I’m forever indebted to SBS because they backed me. I mean who would have backed a talking scarecrow, garden gnome, half man, half hedge? None of the other stations would have ever gone near me.

Do you realise that you’re only the third host of ‘Gardening Australia’ in 23 years?

Yeah, that’s pretty freaky, isn’t it.

How did you score that gig?

It was a knock on the door. The ABC came and tapped on the door and said, “We’re looking for change,” and I said, “Well if you’re up for change I’ll bring it.”

What can we expect from the show?

I really want to drive the importance that for everything we do we’ve got to ask one simple question: is my action building and supporting life or is my action supporting death? Am I eating food that’s going to make me more alive or am I eating processed dead food that’s been transported across the world using a lot of energy and then been infused with all sorts of chemicals to preserve it so that it supports an industry that’s very destructive? I really want health to be a big part of the show. Health of environment, health of ecosystems, support of nature’s systems, use of nature’s systems to regenerate her. That immediately alienates some people because they’re saying, “This is meant to be a gardening show.” My answer to that is that the whole world’s a garden and if we don’t look after that garden you’re not going to have your little garden to play with your plants because we’re messing with the joint.

When’s it on?

It’s on Saturdays at 6:30pm and repeated on Sundays at 1:00pm.

Did you ever dream you’d be hosting a television show?

I remember dreaming when I was in about second class that I wanted to be a scientist that took the venom out of snakes, which is very strange. And there was probably a time when I thought I’d love to be able to deliver a project that put all of these truthful ideas out there. So yes, that would have been a dream.

International Compost Awareness Week is coming up in May (May 7-12); can you tell us a bit about your involvement?

I’m an ambassador for International Compost Awareness Week and I’m hosting the Compost Ball. I’m also involved with a series of demonstrations down at the Bondi Farmers Market on the Saturday of that week. During the week the whole three council initiative (Waverley, Randwick and Woollahra Councils) are inspiring and encouraging people to do compost initiatives in their neighbourhoods. They’ll be holding workshops, getting specialists in, giving away worm farms and compost bins, creating some compost, and just generally acting on it locally. You can find out more about International Compost Awareness Week at www.compostweek.com.au or for more local events you can go to www.reduceyourfootprint.com.au.

How self sustaining are you in terms of your food consumption and waste output?

I’m really conscious of my waste output and I’m constantly doing as many little things as possible – always saying no to plastic bags, buying bulk supplies of simple things like nuts and muesli to minimise packaging, going to co ops and taking my own jars, buying from the local growers market where I can meet the grower. I cherish trying to not put the garbage bin out. I work in reverse. If I can go three weeks without putting the garage bin out that’s a victory.

And you have four chickens, don’t you?

Yep, and I just got offered a fifth. I think six or seven will eventually do because I’m now getting a lot of people bringing their scraps around to me. I’m not only composting it but giving it to the chooks too. What I love about my chooks is that they are fertility makers. The eggs are a bonus but their key mission statement is turning waste or scraps into fertility and the fertility fuels the produce and the produce fuels me.

Are they producing many eggs?

Yeah, out of the four girls I average two to three eggs a day. So that’s pretty much two dozen eggs a week, which is heaps.

What do you do with your excess?

Well, between Dad and I, we don’t eat two-dozen eggs a week. I could if I made more omelettes. But what I do is I put a little six-pack out once a week and people who put their scraps in to feed the chooks get to take them. So then the kids get to realise that their scraps have been turned into eggs and that’s cool.

And do, the chooks have names?

The two eldest are Henrietta and Thelma. My younger charge, who comes out with me everywhere on courses and so on, is Kinky, and then the fourth one was a recent arrival, a sick one, who I nursed back into health and it’s yet to be named.

Can you give The Beast readers a couple of quick tips to help them become more sustainable through gardening?

First point, it doesn’t matter whether you’ve got six small pots, six square meters or 60 square metres, you can provide health changing nourishment for your body and soul by growing your own simple salad greens that are pretty much bullet proof. Don’t go for tomatoes straight away, just go with the salad greens. Secondly, look inside your bin then have a look in the mirror. You might get a bit of a shock at just what you throw out and the only person that can change that is you. Carry a plastic bag around with you all day and put everything that you’re going to put into a bin into that plastic bag and see what you’ve got at the end of the day. Remove the food scraps out of your waste stream and either start a composting system or find a neighbour who is into composting and take the scraps to them or your local community garden. Finally, take responsibility for everything that you put in your mouth. Eliminate preservatives and chemically produced food from your mouth. Think of yourself as your own personal border control and stop chemicals from going into your body by growing your own, buying from a growers market or reading labels.

Tell me about your beard; how long have you had it for?

The beard celebrated its 20th year in November. So it’s been 20 years since I’ve owned a razor and I love it.

Will it ever go?

What do they say in that Bond film? Never say never!

For the right cause it might?

A few people have asked me and I was at one school fundraising thing and they said, “Will you chop it for $500?” I said, “Mate, I wouldn’t even soap the brush for $500.”

Why did the beard first come about? Is your old man bearded?

No, he’s never had a beard. He never even has stubble. The first time I grew it was when my girlfriend at the time went overseas. I had these big lamb chops when I was at uni and I decided to go for the big link up. I closed it up and the beard grew and then she came back from overseas and foolishly I shaved it off. Then a couple of years later I grew it again. I was in Egypt at the time, we were cruising up the Nile and at about 2am on the final night on this cruise I got crook as. I was crook for a couple of weeks and I couldn’t be bothered shaving. I love not having to shave. I love that I can wake up in the morning and that’s it. I don’t have to fuss and manicure and pamper around. I just get up and go.

Do you have a career highlight thus far?

Probably the opportunity to go into Yirrkala in Arnhem Land and to be welcomed by the local rangers and to feel a true welcome to country that rattles your very cage. That’s two years ago now and it’s still settling. It was amazing. The welcome itself bought me to tears. I would rate that as one of my biggest privileges.

Do you have any advice for youngsters looking to convince their parents to let them build a veggie garden?

Yeah. That’s a good question. Just tell them that I said we have to start yesterday.

In an ideal world what does the future hold for Costa Georgiadis?

I want to continue to inspire people to put food and nutrition as the priority in their life, to let go of the consumption and the accumulation and just go for the simple here and now importance of taking note of everything they put in their body, building up an internal composting system that takes every bit of mineral out of their food and fuels a state of health and state of mind that gives them the opportunity to have visions, dreams and the capacity to achieve them.


  1. I enjoy watching ABC’s Gardening TV show and I agree that Costa is a good host. The only thing that prevents me from totally enjoying it is Costa’s too hairy & i feel itchy watching him because of it.. I think just like a garden hedge, he at least needs a “trim”!

    This is a comment and it’s not for anything else.

    • Hey Tess,
      Beard or not I reckon Costa is a great bloke with the absolute right intention. I would happily spend time learning from him and would wager you would too as his beard would become less relevant with communication. Which is the important bit.
      Cheers Pete

  4. Hi there, i heard your comments re water saving and sustainability on ABC radio 702 recently. There were mistakes in the information given about water use in urban areas and it would be good if this was rectified again on the afternoon show. I am now retired but I was the Director of the NSW Salinity Strategy and I am a geologist so have some knowledge of this subject. It is OK to get water into the ground in some rural settings but not generally in urban areas. In rural areas the idea is to increase the organic content of the soil so it HOLDS more water and does not leak past the root zone thereby raising the water table. In urban areas there is already too much water leaking to the water table because of watering gardens, leaking pipes – rain is enough. Hence the water table tends to mound under urban development. Rubble drains, which were mentioned on the ABC as a good way of getting rid of tank overflows etc are VERY unwise in an urban setting and could result in damage to nearby buildings and homes. It was this very thing that caused the water table under Wagga Wagge to rise within a few inches of the surface of the town. In regional towns where there is generally a lack of good storm water management there has been a lot of building damage because of rising saline water tables. So although it might seem to be the right thing to add more water to the soil, near a house it can cause a lot of damage. Hope you can pass on this info to people who may have been listening to the ABC radio on Saturday. Many thanks

  6. Last year I met Costa when he was in Dubbo, NSW. He came across as generous and passionate. Following on I have emailed Costa so that I can invite him to a very important event taking place in May 2015…so if you have a phone number for him could you please email me with that information.

  7. Love all Costa’s gardening session and would simply love to have him give a couple of pensioners some tips on how to manage and get our garden and yard healthy in growth. Must say i am not fond of the beard or long hair but as a host and garden guru he is amazing.

  8. A little truth about Costa Georgiadis
    and how this identity litrally emerged overnight projected as a God;
    the efforts he, his father Stan and I have made to date to correct things that have
    been put out there as untrue and how our lives have
    been constantly under threat in the effort.
    “Tell them we love one another” he says. I don’t think that will do I added.
    It’s all gotten out of hand and it is directly related to and fueling the fight
    between good and evil that appears to have gotten so far out of hand now
    that there have been attempts on both my life and his fathers in order to uphold
    a public untruth.

  9. I have known Costa Georgiadis for 35 years now. He his father and I have had over half dozen meetings together at their home to try to find solution to the escalated problem refered to as fight between good and evil that portion of which started from his insecurity years ago and is directly related and associated to all the grafitti. beards, stalking, cyberbullying and motorbikes”.
    “Your complete” he said with a little dissapointment or maybe a little envy on the first day we met- meaning something like what my couzin Andrea always said “youve got all the gifts” Mm but Ive got the money she would then add cheerfully.
    “Tell them we love one another “Costa says thinking that that should do it at a meeting recently. I dont think that will do I said you just have to stop your giving them the wrong idea and one claise of the work condition was they werent to do any charities for 2 weeks after the works till I got muself into the right place and settled for the balance. Contrary to this agreement I found that he had secretly commenced them immediately and I found others involvement pushing him to do it in over a hundred cases. When I showed this to his father we were both horrified and explained why I had seen over Its gone too far its like an attepted take over. But Ive told them he says Im not party to it any more. I told him I had sent the letter that was written by him and his father appologizing for what they had started half way through the works at their Bondi home where I had been employed to decorate and balance their home. Their were serious conditions in place to ensure he didnt do it again but these were not followed they were taken advantage of. “were in trouble he says ” we need your help. And at the same time do what you need to retrieve the rest of your energies . I agreed and then we started but within a week or so some 20 or so adds went out in all areas of media even fashion and bridal magazines areasspecific to me using my light. which encouraged others to join in. I sent it to the commissioners office of police nsw after repeated life threats continued. He wasnt surprised, I want them to stop it as much ss you do he said but it was clear he had little control over it.
    He had done something really bad years ago stripping me of my energies a massive assault that left me almost unconscious just weeks my move back to my life in Point Piper. Within a day it snowballed. a neighbour single mother approached me to say I work in numbers and your gifts are for all of us. Alarms went off within me and I took off to report it to Maroubrs police.The seniour officer said it was very serious and sensitive and had to be handled correctly. A convoy of three vehicles escorted me back to the property to address the woman and the seniour officer gave me absolutely strict instructions not to go to anyone else but him st the first sign of any repeat. The very next day another assault on the property by the same woman and a friend in Costas presence hardly dissapproving. Three Police officers attended they spent 20 minutes laughing down stairs as friends. When I asked for him at the station a week or so later I was told he had passed away in a slightly angry manner. I feel I have been fighting this alone with no help since then and Costa had been just as vulnerable. The names of those behind it have been forwarded to the authorities but nothing has been done but to continuously threaten and obstruct my position so that it looks to the whole that he is the active one with some over 1000 forced associations to date in departments including tagging me toin attempt to debilitate while they work his immage as mine. There cant be anything more redicoulous . Get the Fuc- ing house he says after 4 years in hotels persued continuously and pushed around like a hokey game. There are hundreds of incidents now only bits given to the authorities who appear to have the numbers but insufficient light perhaps to cover my position. Ive never worked so hard in my life dodging threats and assaults told I cant goto my family because theyre on their side which followed aserious incident where I was pretty much held at gun point while my family homes were targetted. Ive spent every moment Xmas easter day and night alone while they have been manipulating my darling just as much. He wouldnt have done it without the backing. Finally I told the commissioners office a new or renovated house specifically in that condition would end the fight but nothing was offered . My sister said they were in trouble after the phone calls they got and in a Greek Cypriot loving family where I know of nothing but food and kisses I found myself outside on the street “where not allowed to help you said my brother in law” what are you doing says Steve his mate “itwrre just not allowed he says my sister adding that they were being heavily overridden and I knew but I reported it all thats been done is police have intercepted me on every move just prior to getting the shop on 2 occassioncs , various houses and Ive been followed in to each shop by someone in an attempt to manipulate the circumstances in more times than not the shop has been targetted there after. Early in the peace I sort advice from keading solicitors in Melb and Sydney , both immediately said we cant do anything here you have to go straight to the commissioner of police . I approached their office twice to get an appointment and was told He diesnt see just anyone. what else have I done to stop it? I left a letter ther saying in no short terms I Want It To Stop. He wasnt fully aware but afew in that office are . It feels as though I have been put into some sort of rediculous challenge were there is none with him since as his name is called out several times a day when Im out and about as if he is party to it but I know he is not. I have to get it out somehow Im sorry its abit raw and rushesed but I wont let this go any further. A After sexual assault followed a rape then this level of persuit allowing no man no family or anyone to give or exchange love with in effort to attempt the drain of our world and make unchallenged an immage of Christ as him costa which he is not. Thats my pisition in the union and Ive told hin some 3-4 times he cant have it. Whats it going to take here? leave us alone and get on with your own lives.
    II have deen pushed into one option of place as nothing has been made availabe to me for years and have soent up to 10 hours a day restoring concrete, flooring plasters someting etc Lets see what youve got now says the cult leader who I have had 2 run ins with while he has asserted its his terf . No mate its not yours. Back off !
    Some 5 years ago I went into the station at waverly court and reported what they were doing and offered thanks to the commissioners office for being wise enough to remove my details making it innaccessible while some were trying to build up a false file image and identity whilst each opportunity gave them a chance at me “we got her” Ive heard so many times it makes me sick. The last thing that occured after the assaults in Coogee within days a new tennant came in whom I had never met and overnight destroyed and threw out some 6-8 pieces of my hand made furniture paintings and prints then some from across the road in housing joint with the agent to push both myself and the other tenants out and double the rent.Ten books wouldnt cover it . Thats enough
    If there is any need for proof of

    Look mate his father says not long ago at their home,you better fix this or she’ll dob you in.
    Both his father and I were being affected terribly by the numbers that jumped in to join him in what can only be refered to as theft of identity. I asked him why he did it at a meeting at the Hyatt about a year ago. ‘”Im a young soul , and I was hungry for spirituality”.
    he said. He is not a God, its quite the opposite but I love him just the same.
    Its gone way out of hand ,lives have been lost taken as a sign oft truth needs to be spoken.

  10. It is significant to note the last communication with Costa Georgiadis some 5 weeks ago over the phone relating to the previous notes posted.
    I think Ive managed to separate myself I said to him. His immediate response was “Not yet! Not untill were all through” Upon that I ended the call. I will not carry every one through. . it is not my roll nor am I conscious of any such arrangement.
    Prior to my mothers passing I had been approached and told in no short terms that if I wasnt happy with the cult leader who admitted and told me directly that I was dealing with him in all these situations that they would begin a process of elimination of women.
    This has nothing to do with truth its all about an egotistical body who in my opinion has been building his power of corruption
    by breaking in and overiding peples identity in an unseen process most cant see. For a redicoulous Im number one outcome that requires emotional addressing. I approached them after the very first incident and ssked them to back off but they did not.
    The person directly responsible for influence on Costa and all incidents including loss of life was approached by me at his home and asked to stop . His response was “Im allowed, they are available” The methods used here are not spiritually permitted at all.
    I visited their establishment on various occassions to let them know I was aware and awake to their methods to stop it. The only reasonable remark offered by a facilitator there was ” we need you” , ” We need some help here”. And while that is clearly evident they are to respect general laws as everyone else. No lives are to be taken and if they require spiritual guidance or help then have the decency to employ me and pay me for my services. They are not available for the taking or theft. Ive had enough of it.
    Of all our women australian who have been manipulated out of jobs while the cult has deliberately imposed influences in certain departments to allow too many foreigners in as effort to unbalance the state well I can tell you it would take afew weeks to put the balance back with some order. A small fully renovated terrace in around albert park/ south melb is required to sort this situation out must be held privately.
    I also need a purchaser for a 2006 porsch boxter and have handed in my licence to lessen the damages to the whole.
    Your not doing anything with your gifts he said to me justifying the actions made to date by them in taking my path over to do what is my purpose here to do. The gifts I came in with are earned fair and square through hard work. If that inspires you then do the work and you will reap the rewards. No evil will stand in my way from this day foth and no women will be hurt in effort that man project himself as strong. Your perception of strong is distorted . Yes I respect your part and position please respect mine. its over!

    -“Don’t you get it, this is where we want you” said an employee there after my findings. We had it cleared but then they kept putting it back in.
    -My darling Costa was picked up and taken out of my hands like a peanut while we were in relationship and I stood there in the biggest challenge of my life presented with “what are you going to do now” says another entity.
    We were both targeted at the same time.

    – I was told “You have to play the game”
    I told the person “There is no game when one knows what your up to”, “You still have to play” he added.

    -A detective brought the problem to my address when she came to give me a warning of what they might do.

    – When my mother asked me to come back home to Melbnourne and look after them I said “I would be happy to”. She said the carer that came in from council weekly would have to stop coming and you will have to take over and do it. I agreed.
    I left within a a few dayswas concerned of the enormous following of my person and any possible detrimental side effect by the deliberate and harmful association of my innocent name in amongst the wrong groupings.
    – Within a week or so my mother’s life was taken and $400 was held tightly in one fist when she was found as a message to me so that I would know how it was done.

    – I managed to survive up to recently and purchased an apartment around the corner from my previous couture connections in South Yarra. The day I was about to sign the lease on the shop next to my supplyer a letter came from police to say they were going to suspend my licence. No car no business.
    The reason given that they thought I may have been negligent in my driving prior to the accident months back.
    * On the day of the accident I left for Sydney in one last effort to make the report to the commissioner regarding myself.
    I intended to tell him that over 40 of my energies (power)were stripped from me in my previous visit to his office,. The person who did it was seated at the front desk weighing some 4-500 pounds. Within days I was burdened with his energies and could barely move.When I managed to get back there to tell him what happened “Tso take us to court” he said. “There won’t be any court” I added and left..
    Within the first lunch stop outside of Melbourne on this planned trip 2 female police officers approached me and gave me the battering of my life. When I asked their reason for approaching me “It was you who rang today and said…” My response was “I have not made any calls today. They left then returned a second time. I recovered had lunch and continued.
    Within an hour the accident was waiting for me with a tractor on the side of a narrow tree lined strip off the highway and a council vehicle parked negligently in the CENTRE of the left lane just inside the line as stationary. The men were nowhere to be seen. I survived but was prevented from getting all my belongings particularly the ipad that had the evidence of countless incidents as proof of other incidents.
    My phone was destroyed but was not offered a phone to call my family.
    A couple directly behind me thanked me for saving their lives “If you didn’t collect it we sure would have” said the lady ” “She was driving safely” says the partner to the officer present.” “Can I please use your phone to call my family” he agreed. I rang 000 and spoke in Greek as though to my parents and asked the fellow to repeat my innocence Yes that’s right he says. Receipt # was given.
    The worst situation was that for weeks my insurer couldn’t recover my vehicle to inspect it nor to allow me to get my things- namely the ipad.

    My vehicle was not being released and the holding station chosen by the officer was dictating to the insurer. I was paid out full market value with the insurer without seeing the vehicle.By my persistence when it arrived at the inspection station it was unrecognisable. It had been smashed around on the other undamaged side and a great many of the parts had been removed and jam packed inside what was left of a vehicle.
    The holding station also a panel beater. I offered to cover every expense to transport the vehicle myself to the insurer with no success.
    I was deterred from taking the shop soon after in effort to prove my correct professional position.
    My fabric couture supplyer was next door and closed down within a week after 20 years.

    The same occurred with my supplier of herbs on Toorak road. “Don’t give it to her” a young man yells out.
    Some months before in a health food store the same thing occurred. adding “don’t give it to he the gifts are ours”

    I managed to survive until the recently threat to suspend my license after a 35 year perfect record.

    Within days another letter from police and within a week or so prior to another shop another letter this time from a sheriff’s office reminding me of a fine almost $800 each with no grounds.
    I handed in the licence to protect my perfect record after I was approached and told not long before “Thankyou for driving safely, you have a perfect record.”

    This has been going on for years.I have managed to survive it until the recent letters and fines from police fining me for the incident which I was paid out in full and suspected that they were using the one incidence to place me amongst heavy innapropriate groupings.

    In Doncaster when I came from Sydney I booked into a hotel up the road as it was really late.
    “We only have the bridal suite ” says the receptionist. I took it and went straight up for a shower.
    When I got out the air con was broken and I went down and asked for a small heater if they had one. The lady appeared angry that I asked for such a thing but I was cold. She said they didn’t have any and I leaned forward to look behind the counter not believing her and there was one going within inches from her feet. She was clearly embarrassed. I walked off and went back to my room to go to bed. Within minutes there was heavy knocking on my door, really loud so I opened up. There stood 2 officers in blue. How can I help you I said. We want to talk to you says one. “What’s the reason” I asked . He didn’t answer. “Get dressed”
    he added. I had only just come out of the shower still wet with only a small towel wrapped around me. Ok I said and as I let go of the heavy door to dress myself he wedges his foot in the doorway in the most aggressive action knowing full well that the windows in this hotelare all locked and do not open. I was on the 2nd floor. Their station was directly opposite.
    His partner immediately reacted with”She’s high intelligence, I’m not going to be part of that” and he took off out of sight to the other end of the hallway.
    I was forced to strip and dress in front of him in the most humiliating situation of my entire life.
    and then behave politely as he plays the power position. The other officer added “But she hasn’t done anything wrong.” My energy was being compromised and he delaying the process with question after question writing a file on me while I was fully aware his ethics were in question; my right to freedom, privacy and security were being clearly invaded and the manner used unfriendly,intrusive and short of responsible.
    in approach. When he was done with all the questions he demanded I come into the station the next morning. I suddered thinking what else is he going to do. ”
    “I have my licence here I said let me show it to you”
    “No, come in to the office tomorrow morning.” he added. It was clear the other officer had less ranking that this person but his judgement that was correct was not considered. The next morning I went in and offered the paperwork. He came around and stood beside me then waved his hand in the air toward the papaerwork “Don’t worry about that” I stood there concerned for my spiritual safety as he looked up above his haed and began a stripping of my energies/personal power. It’s all on camera . Lets all see it so we can see how some of them have been improving their positions and then advertising their upgrade publicly.
    That’s enough. They started doing this to me years ago then made their services time and support unavailable to me.
    This is not correct.You are not permitted by law to use the position of power to further improve your unnadressed issues or health by undermining the safety and privacy of an individual and their family to whom you are sworn in and paid regardless if Gov have not done right by he, you are not to use force or invade privacy of a person let alone an innocent woman.

    This is the first time I am giving one example as I have written to them knowing full well what they were doing but they have continued assuming I do not know. That’s enough.
    It is not that I am high intelligence, It is the fact that I am the highest in the union with Costa Georgiadis. It is a huge responsibility as many people read or are guided by those in higher spiritual position.
    Now that’s enough. Even after my mother’s life was taken you did not make your service or time available to me after I wrote to inform you that 2 guys waited outside our family home that afternoon as we were all shattered by our loss and as I came out of the house one man made cleargesture to me by face and gesticulation that he had scored a point.
    What they had done to my darling Costa they also did to my remaining three family members in the house to prevent me from staying lest they be hurt.
    I have been in hotels for years not by my own choice but their influence, obstructing my every move from getting publicly seen doing what I do whilst they have been promoting Costa ‘the beard’ by overpowering my person continuously by way of spiritual stalking. On 2 occasions they sliced clean through from the crown to my feet severing the rubber soles on my shoes to obstruct me from any work.

    Costa said “NO!” I may have wanted it initially he said but we are not part of it any more we want it to stop. I told a person at Bunnings as I was purchasing all the building materials what they were doing to me and Costa as he watched the program, and he came straight out and said ” Look you… I’m atheist” meaning you can’t have him because. Well he loves me and I love him.
    Over some years now with all this bullying a number complete straingers have approached me to say “We want love” When I planned 2 trips to far away secluded places to clear myself and ensure they get love, I was met almost immediately by police and aggressively moved along to ensure it was not carried out. It became clear that they didn’t mean they wanted affection but ME as LOVE itself for themselves. That you can’t have. If you want love all would receive more love by Costa and I coming together.
    After they picked him up like that they were the influence not him now let go of him!
    In the conditions work for his holiday house (which I was preparing as our possible future home) and he paid me for it, including the work for his fathers place the job steared more by him than his father they agreed not to bring anyone through the house throughout the sensitive works and agreed. We have always been so close with high mutual respect yet after the override immediately within days he brought ABC into the house then again and again to shoot then a dozen or so off the street for lunch. The photos of the work agreed by them not to be photographed was then placed on the internet and no effort made to remove it whilst they toured him round to spread these aggressive energies as unseen through all the schools to attempt a take over by them and attempt to secure a future of evil in power. I won’t allow it. It’s over.

    I am still able to produce one garment a day almost entirely by hand. These garments retailed for $5,000 per piece in the department store. Its not the fact of the price but the fact that I can produce an entire wardrobe for any individual and within a week or so, for either gender.

    ” We’re not the ones doing it,” says my sister before leaving for o/s, “we don’t have that kind of power.”

    I created the simplesite recently to set the record straight.
