Arthur McInnes - Sustainable Rural Development

“This course is giving us access to so many resources like seeds, plant material, potting mix and the use of the facilities. My partner and I are developing family land and we’re keen on living and promoting food sovereignty and sustainability.”

“We’ve been living overseas but I’m originally from here and I love how relaxed and flexible the course is. It is hands-on and self-paced and we get to take on our own projects here. My sister for example is converting the corner of a conventional orchard into a food forest. It’s exciting to be part of. The tutors are very knowledgeable and we’re swapping seed and plant material now amongst the students.”

“I’ll go onto the next level after this and the dream is to grow our own food. I also want to have a positive impact on people around me and give them the knowledge and resources to feed themselves and build their own houses.”
