Program participants will have the opportunity to:
- Complete a Certificate II and/or IV in Horticulture
- Learn about food sustainability, how to grow fresh fruit, vegetables and traditional bush foods
- Learn about farm management, using machinery and environmentally controlled growing systems
- Support local communities by providing access to healthy food
- Join a culturally safe and supportive learning group
