New farm training opportunities for local college students

Monday, 18 March 2019

A new initiative between Masterton Trust Lands Trust (MTLT) and Wairarapa College will provide more farm training and career opportunities for college students in the region.

The initiative will see greater industry involvment in the Wairarapa College farm which is located on MTLT-owned land adjacent to the college campus.  MTLT has provided the land to Wairarapa College for the past 64 years to enable practical, hands-on learning for agricultural students.

An advisory panel involving local industry experts has recently been established to provide advice and expertise to the college for its agricultural programme and courses.
