Environmental Learning Facility (ELF)

Environmental Learning facility, ELF

The Environmental Learning Facility (ELF) is an innovative project is located at the Orange Showground. The ELF is a multi-functional centre for learning, which is designed to provide a working demonstration of the technologies available for developing more ecologically sustainable lifestyles.

NetWaste is a major partner and sponsor in the development of the ELF and instrumental in providing cost effective resource sharing opportunities for the operation of the ELF.  Work commenced on the construction of the facility in April 2003 and the support from the community, business and TAFE has been astounding. Support in the form of materials, labour and other in-kind assistance has clearly demonstrated the community’s commitment to this project.

Construction of the ELF was completed in April 2005. The development of the permaculture gardens on the site continue to be enhanced by the invaluable support of volunteers from the Orange community.
