Usually you can connect the Arduino to a computer via a (micro)USB cable. On the computer, you open a program called Arduino IDE (Integrated Development Environment). You can download it from the official Arduino website.

However, the guys from FarmBot are trying to make this as easy as possible for everyone. What you could probably just do is connect the Raspberry Pi and the Arduino with a USB cable, flash an SD card with the latest FarmBot OS image (instructions), and plug that SD card into the Raspberry Pi. The Pi should then take care of any firmware on the Arduino for you.
