A natural learning place on a model organic farm near Bogor, West Java.
Welcome to 5EyesFarm
5EyesFarm is an education centre on an organic farm aiming to empower through natural knowledge and developing food security through sustainable practices.
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.

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.
Applying organic farming practices to productive food growing and animal raising. Natural farming and permaculture influences all that we do.
