    • develop job ready skills that could be used in a wide range of horticultural and farming pursuits or workplaces
    • explore green food business opportunities—like supplying local shops with quality, organic produce.

  • Come along to a free orientation day at the Living Classroom in Bingara on 4 February where guest speakers will talk about what you can expect from this course.

The theory component of the training will be held at Bingara Community College.
