Farming Together’s online courses aim to develop collaborative understanding in Australian agriculture. Our first course aims to help people understand the variety of collaborative models, particularly co-operatives, prior to formation. It is designed for our farming groups and consultants and is currently open for FREE to the public.

Additional courses may be offered through this site in the future. Farming Together is working with agricultural organisations to identify training needs and develop additional services.
