APPROACH

Lots of people want to see a healthier world now and in the future, so we came up with a funding model that allows you to help out, whilst learning and experiencing along the way.

We offer two types of courses, an OPEN PROGRAM (available to the public for a fee) and a SCHOOLS PROGRAM (available for schools free of charge). Funds raised from our Open courses help finance the Schools Program making them accessible for every school. So as you learn, you’re funding a school group to learn with you. Our children ARE our future, and we want to promote a healthier future.  

The OPEN PROGRAM is focused on food and lifestyle workshops teaching skills for cooking, preserving, charcuterie, baking, gardening, animal husbandry, butchery, nutrition and wellbeing.

The SCHOOLS PROGRAM teaches students the basics of cooking and how food is produced, but most importantly, communicates how the food we eat impacts personal health. The Schools program empowers children and teenagers with knowledge to positively influence health and wellbeing into adult life. Nutritional information used in the Schools program is derived from the Australian Dietary Guidelines.

Although The Nursery Project is a Not for Profit business, the reality is it requires funds to operate. As a direct service provider, operational costs are significant, so we rely on supplementary funding from fundraising events, philanthropic donations, government grants and sponsorship. All contributions over $2 are tax deductible. All funds raised contribute to ongoing operational costs of the foundation.   

The Nursery Project is a place to learn about food.

An educational farm nurturing minds to better understand how food impacts
human and environmental health.  

We teach how food is grown, how it’s raised and how to cook it. The old saying “You are what you eat” is true, so we promote the idea that to have healthy humans you need healthy food and a healthy environment.

The Nursery Project is not just an educational facility. It’s also a place to share ideas, generate conversation, support community projects and most importantly, it’s a place to have fun with food.

We are a not-for-profit service provider.

Mission

Mission

The health of Australia’s population is the worst in recorded history with over 63.4% of adults either overweight or obese (ABS 2014). Obesity is a leading cause of secondary medical issues contributing to heart disease, type 2 diabetes and cancers. Obesity is greatly influenced by a diet of high energy processed foods (containing refined sugars and fats) coupled with minimal mobility and exercise.

Our mission is to provide the community with skills and knowledge that promote healthy lifestyles and a healthy environment.  
The Nursery Project advocates the importance of eating real food in relation to human health and the prevention of lifestyle disease.

The Nursery Project aims to educate via experience how food is produced, and how food impacts human and environmental health.
