The Grow. Feed. Educate. Give Back Program™ takes each child on an organic learning journey through nature’s classroom as it grows & feeds us.
The 12 module program is based on the organic farming model of The Farm Byron Bay and offers a holistic approach to the lessons found on a working organic farm and beyond. The program is the first of its kind and is delivered by bachelor qualified teachers.
The program will guide learners through a series of real-world learning experiences on The Farm and create opportunities for those learnings to become home and community actions.
We bring organic learning & organic farming from The Farm Byron Bay to you.

Navigate Using Your Farm Passport.
The Farm Passport is a navigation tool for the Grow. Feed. Educate. Give Back Program™. The holistic education passport is based on The Farm Byron Bay's organic farm learning locations. It is intended to be used as a way for each child to virtually visit The Farm no matter where their location is in the world & feel ‘really there’.
Become a Farm Citizen.
By completing the 12 modules in the Grow. Feed. Educate. Give Back Program™ & stamping all passport stops each child will become a Farm Citizen. A Farm Citizen has learnt what it means to be part of The Farm Community & how they can take these learnings out into the world. The future of our planet & everything that lives on it depends on what we do right here, right now. Farm Citizens are truly part of an organic farming & organic learning movement.

The Next Generation Regenerators Planting Project
As part of our Give Back vision, for every children’s program sold a native tree is planted right here on The Farm Byron Bay. Children are the ‘Next Generation Regenerators’ learning the importance of land regeneration throughout the program. The planting project has been created to contribute to existing rainforest regeneration areas enhancing the biodiversity of the area, improving water quality & creating native wildlife corridors. We are very excited to have The Next Generation Regenerators part of this ongoing planting project — giving back to the earth, the community & the planet.

Learn About Bees & Pollinators & Meet Cedar From Flowhive®
Co-Founder The Farm Byron Bay
After a 15 year career in marketing and advertising in the UK and Sydney, Emma left the corporate world and Sydney behind to focus on raising her four children with her husband Tom and to foster her interest in health, well-being and nutrition. After considerable study, Emma received her health coach qualification from the Institute of Integrated Nutrition. Armed with her new passion for growing, cooking and eating real food, a love of nature and the benefits organic farming, she and Tom created The Farm at Byron Bay. The Farm is a place for reconnecting and educating all age groups about food provenance and regenerative farming practices and hosts regular educational workshops for children, school groups and adults. This change in direction for Emma and Tom has been one of the most rewarding shifts in their lives. Their children have subsequently developed a deep love and connection to the land through the educational opportunities that The Farm project has cultivated.
