Online learning allows farmers to connect from the paddock

Commentary by Stephen Downes

I have frequently said "the best place to learn forestry is in the forest." Now I guess I'll have to add that the best place to learn farming is in the paddock (for urbanites, a paddock is a small field where horses and other animals are kept, so I guess we're not talking about whest farming here). "The EverTrain website currently offers five accredited and non-accredited courses and was launched by the Department of Primary Industries (DPI) and Future Farm Industries Cooperative Research Centre at the National Wine and Grape Industry Centre, Wagga." That would be in Australia. [Image: permaculture eXchange]
