About the department
The Organic Farming and Permaculture Department is located within The National Environment Centre (NEC) at Thurgoona. The NEC is home to a 180 hectare certified organic farm that’s used as a teaching tool for students who study on-campus. It produces organic lamb, paddock pork, pasture eggs, honey, olives, vegetables, grains for flour and mushrooms.
Our Courses are taught by professionals often sought after by key industry and community groups for conferences, forums and advice. Courses are also offered from Certificate II through to Diploma and can be part-time, full-time or by flexible delivery. Each program is tailored to suit the needs of the individual student and the type of enterprise they work in.
