We are fortunate to be able to offer you the opportunity to visit Greengate Farm in Thurgoona in partnership with the Upper Goulburn Landcare Network.

Greengate is an organic farm, developed as a learning facility at NSW TAFE Riverina Institute by Rob Fenton. The property is a 400 acre educational facility that is certified organic. This Farm is part of TAFE Riverina Institute based at The National Environment Centre just outside Albury, NSW. Click here to learn more about Greengate Farm.

The farm acts as teacher and is run by the interns studying a Diploma of Organic Farming. The farm uses Agro-Ecology principles, specialises in sustainable & ecological agriculture. The course also guides interns to develop strategies around farming with uncertainty, managing climate risk & farming with ecological approaches.

The farm is designed for robustness and relies on a diverse ecosystem. Green Gate Organic Farm has a poly culture of systems and connected pathways that build resilience in a changing climate.
