The mission of Moonacres School for 2024 and beyond is to provide educational and inspirational learning opportunities that supports Moonacres Farm and its commitment to soil health, sustainable farming and regenerative agriculture.

We are delighted to launch our 2024 program with the local premier of "Thankful for Soil” an inspiring new film that celebrates the story of Australian farmers who are using the soil beneath their feet to combat climate change and build a brighter future for their family farms. 

The film was produced by local film makers Suzannah Cowley and Nigel Christensen from Nviro Media in partnership with Thankful for Farmers.

After the screening Suzannah Cowley will lead a Q&A with Moonacres founder Phil Lavers and Lachlan Feggans, about their soil health strategies. Learn about how soil health can build more resilient farming systems, address climate change and create a healthier food and a brighter future for everyone.

After the conversation, answer questions and which we hope will inspire everyone to care about, protect and restore our soil for future generations and learn how we can support local farmers who work tirelessly to provide nutritious food for us and protect and rebuild our natural resources.

The film screening will commence at 6:00pm, followed by a conversation and Q&A and light refreshments.

Suzannah, Lachlan, Phil and the team at Moonacres look forward to seeing you soon.
