State of the art facilities
In 2011, Waipa had significant redevelopment and is now the main campus and training centre for agriculture, horticulture, forestry, wood processing and saw milling. A new wood manufacturing centre and new gasification plant now rub shoulders with new facilities for agriculture and horticulture, all of are only a five minute drive from Mokoia Campus.
Space to learn and grow
Students cultivating their green thumbs are enjoying new vegetable gardens and a new tunnel house. Agriculture students are also benefitting from the space to learn practical fencing, chainsaw skills and use the purpose-built ATV course on site.
The new gasification plant has re-established a process flow of timber from the training sawmill to the high temperature kilns and onto timber machining and treating. This enables integrated saw milling, saw doctoring and timber machining training to occur on site.
