Rachel's Farm is for anyone who cares about how their food is produced, how degraded our soils have become, and the changing role of women on farms. 

Award-winning film director and actress Rachel Ward is the last person you’d expect to join a farming revolution. Following the birth of her first grandchild, Rachel is confronted head-on by the impact of our climate crisis as Australia’s Black Summer fires descend on her farm. Besieged by drought and ecological despair, Rachel finds hope in the soil beneath her feet and embarks on a journey of discovery to regenerate the land on her farm, and herself.

The Rachel’s Farm team, and Cool.org  have created packages of free lessons to accompany the film. 

We have worked with curriculum experts to map the film’s messages to the Australian curriculum and create free educational materials that can be used in a variety of settings from secondary school through to agricultural colleges, TAFEs, and community education settings.

Complementing these resources, is Cool.org's suite of 11 lessons about regenerative farming for secondary school which include supporting clips from Rachel's Farm, and 10 lessons about soil health for primary school.
