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.

An expanded Moonacres school with an extended focus on education will build on our existing community and further empower individuals with the understanding and tools needed to foster sustainable farming practices to improve the health and well-being of communities and help drive the change for a more sustainable future of our food systems and environment.

Our farm aims to produce the best quality food in a manner that nurtures the land. "We humbly accept that farming is, by its very nature, hard. Weather, weeds, pests, machines and even best laid plans, will sometimes turn sour and crops will fail. But this is part of our job, and we are committed to working with nature, not against it. Doing this, we enrich rather than rob our environment – and our collective future'. - Phil Lavers

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, farmer Bill Daly and whose wife Rhonda is featured in the film and local farmers about their soil health strategies.

Come along and find out how a focus on soil health can build more resilient farming systems, address climate change and create a healthier food and a brighter future for everyone.

Join us as we have the conversation, answer questions and 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 10:00am, followed by a conversation and Q&A with the film directors and farmers involved in the film and lunch with local farm produce including Moonacres farm.

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