In this video recorded in ABC Open's Age of Aquarius video booth Nathalie recalls magical days and challenges when she pioneered a new method of education as the first teacher of the Tuntable Falls community school.

As a young woman in 1980 Nathalie Buckland was the first employed teacher at Tuntable Falls Community School.

The school was located in the idyllic rainforest region of North Coast NSW.

The parents were living in an alternative community that was birthed out of the Aquarius Festival of 1973. They were hippies experimenting with a less restrictive way of raising children.

This video is part of a special series created in the Age of Aquarius video booth where ABC Open North Coast and a crew of volunteers assisted the Nimbin community to record oral histories of the 1973 Aquarius Festival and its legacy.
