Chris Ferreira grew up on Greenacre Riding School and watched thirty-odd horses progressively destroy his family property. But this became the catalyst for his passion to heal the land and, after studying forestry at ANU and travelling through some of the most remote and degraded parts of Asia and Africa, he came back charged with a purpose to resurrect his beloved farm.

Twelve years of planning and 30,000 plants later, this 83-acre ‘classroom’ launched Chris’s career and his award-winning program Heavenly Hectares.
