The Living Classroom is an ecological “wonderland”, a research centre and showcase for the future of agriculture and for city and country living, an inspiration for regional, national & international visitors, a centre for education and for experimentation for all generations, and for all levels of learning.
The Living Classroom recognises that we are entering a period of extraordinary change. It seeks to chart a positive journey through that change, focusing on the opportunities which change will create.
The project will turn 150 ha of degraded town Common into a highly productive “food forest” – combining a wide range of agricultural activities with horticulture, aquaculture and forestry. It works with the synergies between these activities. Its focus is on food quality, and the connection between soil health, plant and animal health and human health.
The township of Bingara is utilising “The Living Classroom” to become a “close loop” community – self sufficient in food, and recycling all compostable waste (including treated sewage) back to the site.
A new website is coming
We are currently redesigning this website and hope to have it online again by the end of March.
