Between the trees
A natural learning place on a model organic farm near Bogor, West Java.
Welcome to 5EyesFarm
5EyesFarm is an environmental education centre based on an organic farm in, Bogor, West Java.
Our passion is education and seeing learners develop, bloom and flourish.
Combining higher-order learning with hands-on learning in nature we feel we are providing an opportunity for a much-needed balance.
As technology and therefore educational developments progress (rapidly), there is an ever-increasing need for young learners (and older learners too) to also develop hands-on learning, project-based learning and nature-based learning.
We believe connecting learning with nature helps develop material intelligence and increases the overall learning processes.
From our experience, it is about new discovery and inspires learners in practical connections with general learning.
5EyesFarm is not just what we do, it is where we live, reflecting our life-style and establishing our place. And the farm itself is like a canvas for us to offer a different kind of learning and to create different kinds of foods and offer a unique kind of experience for our guests and visitors.

Recycling, reusing, restoring, re-making and selecting products carefully for resilience and a different future. We have used 14000 recycled car tyres to help build the farm… we have used 1000’s of plastic bottles to build walls… We have many innovative ways to utilise product effectively and sustainable.
Teaching the village children English and helping families get ahead is one of our main focuses here. We are their main opportunity in this context. Also, training local farmers to convert their mono subsistence crops slowly into forest gardens for better food security, bio diversity and economy.
