A student experience: Terry Gray

"I moved to the Bryon Shire about 6 years ago after falling in love with the area on surfing trips from Sydney. What started out as an interest in organic gardening led me to the college as I had discovered Permaculture and the college was offering the Cert III in Permaculture, which, through life circumstances, I was unable to complete the first time. The college gave me the opportunity to come back and give it another go. I completed my Cert III in Permaculture and went on to recently complete the Certificate III in Horticulture.

I have just had the most incredible learning experiences here at the college. The college staff and trainers have given me all the support that I have needed and I have made some life- long friends. The buildings here and the grounds are really inspiring also. One day I would love to be able to teach Permaculture and I believe the college is giving me the opportunity to reach that goal. I am excited to be doing the Certificate IV in Permaculture this year and could not recommend the Cert III in Permaculture and Cert III in Horticulture highly enough."
