Join us for an unforgettable evening as we explore film, farming, and regenerative agriculture with Rachel Ward!

Discover the inspiring journey of acclaimed actress and director Rachel Ward, known for her iconic roles in The Thorn Birds and Against All Odds, as she shifts gears from the world of entertainment to sustainable farming.

Rachel's Farm is a captivating docu-film that delves into Rachel Ward's realization of the ecological impacts of conventional farming practices and her subsequent transition to regenerative farming. Teaming up with farmer, Mick Green, Ward explores the principles of regenerative agriculture, challenging the status quo of industrial farming.
