Community Agreement Print E-mail

After a couple of weeks the students are ready to articulate how they will operate as a community and they develop an agreement to show their commitment. In an evening class, they brainstorm the types of guiding statements they would like to see on the CA and then have a few days to think about it and make any suggestions. This term statements such as the following appear on the CA. The pictures show the students each signing the agreement. This document forms a powerful tool that assists with conflicts and tensions as well as, and most importantly, help to translate our values into action.

  • Everyone has the right to be included
  • Respect others needs and wants
  • Everyone has the right to feel safe here at Gnurad Gundidj

Students meet the cows at the DemoDAIRY Print E-mail
Term 2 - Demo Dairy

DemoDAIRY is a key knowledge point for dairy farmers in south-west Victoria. It is a not-for-profit research demonstration dairy farm located near Terang, Victoria. It is an experimental dairy farm having more than 300 members from the south west region of Victoria. It provides opportunity on dairy focused research, applied demonstration and educational activities to members. It works according farmer's needs and priorities with industry to plan a better and sustainable future.

As part of our Environmental Unit, all students visit the DemoDAIRY to gain an appreciation of leading best practices in the agriculture industry. The Enviro Unit also has foci on Hopkins Falls, Indigenous land use, Crater to Coast rail trail, sustainable river management practices and coastal land care. These are interspersed throughout the program both formally as well as informally through visits, tours and recreational use such as surfing and expeditions.

Specifically, our Demo Dairy visits focus on projects such as reclaiming / recycling effluent water from milking yard wash downs, methane capture from effluent ponds, creation of nutrient filter ponds and wetlands, composting techniques, farm materials recycling strategies, nutrient rich paddocks and various forms of feed (hay, silage, pellets, grass etc) and careers in the dairy industry.
