Study with TAFE NSW
There is huge farm which we call Green Gate Farm. It is a habitat for native animals, and also produces food for us. We have pigs, lambs, chickens, donkeys, alpaca and sheep on the farm. When I feed them, I can learn a lot of things from these animals by observing and interacting.
The farm is designed and based on the permaculture method. For example, the contour is used to correct water flow and to build the fences. The farm is filled with ways to cooperate with nature, while improving sustainability.
The student experience
TAFE NSW often sends me emails and support my studies. They also held a Skype orientation for me, because I couldn't attend it in person. I feel very satisfied with my course and facilities; I can get education from my teachers and do some physical activity at the farm.
Study with the best
My teachers are very supportive about my study. They have suggested some documents and online resources, and they answer all of my questions.
Be job ready
TAFE NSW expands my opportunity to study what I am interested in. I can travel to visit organic farms or buy books about agriculture. Not only at my campus or farm, but by getting this scholarship, I can also learn various things outside the area.
