Farming Together’s online training modules developed and hosted by Southern Cross University

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