The students travel from the distant future of 2232 A.D, a time where people live in harmony with nature, producing their own food in backyard gardens, and eradicating dependence on industrial agriculture. AI has revolutionised the way they live, taking over jobs and making lives easier and more efficient. They have been sent back in time to uncover the secrets of this world, understand the emergence of food forests and the impact of AI on humanity. They carry artefacts from the future, relics of a world yet to come and explore the world to find other travellers like them and wonder why they were sent back at all.
