Kate Spry, a science teacher from Tamworth has developed the first curriculum in Australia that explores regenerative agricultural principles and practices

This unit has been Australianised to adhere to the Curriculum's outcome and objectives for Science, Geography, History, Agricultural Technology and Technology Mandatory Key Learning Areas.
The Unit can be taught as it stands, or has the capacity to employ supplementary pedagogical styles such as, ‘project-based learning’ as it allows real world connections to be made and contexts explored right throughout the unit.
