The BHU Organic Training College

The College was established in 2007 to deliver hands-on programmes in partnership with Lincoln University.

The BHU College is one arm of the BHU Organics Trust. The Biological Husbandry Unit Organics Trust (BHU) is a joint venture between Lincoln University and the New Zealand Organic Movement, dedicated to providing education, training and research in organic, ecological, permanent and related agricultures and horticultures. 

There are three main sections within the trust:

  • The BHU Organic Training College.
  • The BHU Future Farming Centre, which delivers science and extension for agriculture and horticulture.
  • These are supported by The BHU Farm, situated at Lincoln University, and overseen by the Trust Board.
