Producers wanting to learn about organic farming can now do so for a fraction of the cost. Biological Farmers of Australia, BFA, is subsidising the cost of the Diploma in Agriculture (Organic Production) organic farming course for 55 students. The 18-month long curriculum is focused on developing plans to change or develop systems towards organic, and is offered through TAFE NSW Riverina Institute via correspondence. Students are linked with a mentor in their region to help them. A $400,000 grant from the National Workforce Development Fund means students only pay a third of course costs.
