Green Cauldron Farm is located just outside the picturesque village of Tyalgum in the Northern Rivers region of NSW. It has been established as a research and development hub to realise the goal of showcasing local, organic produce and sustainable farming models. The farm grows heirloom and baby vegetables, specialty salad greens and unique herbs. By using integrated pest management (IPM) practices, the farm is chemical free and also produces edible flowers under the brand bloom edible flowers.
The vision for the farm is to develop into an education and training centre based around the productive market gardens. The goal is to educate, encourage and inspire people to understand the importance of sustainable and regenerative agriculture and convince others to join the emerging new generation of small-scale farmers.

The Eco Avengers' program has been written by practising teachers to align with the Queensland curriculum. Eco Avengers is available to city schools, as well regional schools with our travelling facilitators and program resources.
The Eco Avengers program is not only designed to educate students, but with the interactive activities and take-home challenges, we aim to nurture their innate curiosity and passion for the environment to encourage students to go home and engage in conversations with their families on the topic of sustainability and put into practise actions for a sustainable lifestyle.
Our aim is to engage, educate and enlist a team of Eco Avengers that will become everyday heroes and help protect and save our Earth. We target school aged children as the change-makers.
