We Have the Power to Change Our Future, and We’re Trying To Do Something About It

5EyesFrom the Sky

Welcome to 5EyesFarm

We believe that positive change can happen. By growing healthier food and developing better methods, we can implement and share creative resilience to strengthen all our futures.

We are learning to restore the land, create organic gardens, recycle everything, build sustainably, better prepare food and share learning.

We are now on our way to establishing forest gardens – the most productive use of land. And we have a bigger plan for teaching and social development in the region.

We invite you to join with us on a journey of discovery as we experiment with and develop a range of innovative projects.

Organic Farm

Organic Farm

The Organic Farm at 5EyesFarm includes the 'terrestrial' beds - the Aquaponics, the Animal Farm, the Insectarium the medicinal Garden the Forest Gardens and everything that connects these all together.

Integrated Farming using permaculture principles and Natural Farming methods (KNF) are how we have restored the soil here and established thethe first stages of productiuon.

Organic farming is more than growing great foods. It is a way of life. It is connected to the soil, the land, the environment. It is about the water and the air, the biodiversity around us and the ecology here. It is about balance and integration and managing a myriad of elements and products as sensitively as possible.

Green-Ed

Environmental education

Adapting to the world around us, learning resilience through project-based & hands-on learning. Making, growing, cooking, recycling, managing waste, creating systems, seed saving, storing foods, food security, managing resources, restoring and re creating from scrap. These are but some of the projects and workshops in focus at 5EyesFarm.

Sustainable Living

Recycling, Restoring, Reusing, Remaking

Sustainable living is not only something we try and do, it is a value. So we try and apply it to everything we do in the farm. Looking for alternative products, recycling and reusing and making again or from scratch is a fundamental way of doing things at 5EyesFarm.

Good Food

The 5EyesKitchen is always buzzing. amazing foods and juices, desserts and cakes, loaves and fishes and experimental dishes come from the wide range of organic produce from the farm. We are developing recipes and providing exotic spreads to guests and groups who take our tours, workshops and field-trips. And we aim to develop a small restaurant on the farm.

Community Engagement

We have a couple of main goals for community engagement  (social development). The first is teaching English and aspects of Green-Ed to the village kids and families. The second is extending our farming and forest garden model to help local farmers nd small hold farmers in the region.

Creating resilient  change

Environmental Impact

 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. 

Social impact

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. 

Sustainable Farming

Applying organic farming practices to productive food growing and animal raising. Natural farming and permaculture influences all that we do. The soil, the compost, the water, the clean, chemical free processes and all the associated protections and systems. Organic farming becomes organic life for us. 

Innovative Learning

Our Green-Ed centre offers workshops, tours, specially tailored courses and connecting with nature. Hands, Head, Heart learning in nature you can apply to your garden, kitchen, courtyard, patio or windowbox. Try our hands-on learning even if you can’t come to the farm in person.

Good Food Quest

Where does our food come from, how it is grown or raised and what’s actually in it? And besides, what do we do about it if we do know? Good food quest asks these and many more questions in an effort to find solutions together. Please join the conversation, the experimentation, and the journey.
