We just had Farmer Dave... I did a video while he was here but I don't think that I gave him a good enough testimonial with it! He was pretty amazing, hilariously funny for the educators and the children were genuinely happy and entertained the whole time! He did an amazing talk on dog safety, dog language and where breeds come from and it was very interactive.

I wanted to give you a run-down on our experience with Farmer Dave, and would really love you to pass it on to him and his team.I cannot begin to explain how valuable our program with Farmer Dave was for our service in term 2. In a nutshell, it was unorthodox, hilarious, engaging, fun, crazy, messy and charming. The program that was put together was thoughtful and catered to our group beautifully. Farmer Dave, Michael, Casey and their helpers were always well-prepared and gave our very culturally diverse group a real taste of Aussie culture and life on the land. Our children were always excited when they realised it was 'Farmer-Dave Day', and many would go home talking to their parents about what they had experienced. Farmer Dave gave our program (which can sometimes get a little stuffy), a huge reality injection and made not only the children, but our educators find a real sense of what is actually important in our world. It gave us all a great sense of connection to a simpler and wholesome way of life, which in such a digital age is so vital.For me personally, I found that the program reminded me of the fun I used to have when I was young. I saw it instil within our children a real sense of freedom and I couldn't have been more pleased. We were very sad to say goodbye to Dave and his team at the end of last term, and really want to thank him SO much for taking the time to deliver such a unique and terrifically Australian program. If Dave is agreeable, we would LOVE to have him come back when he is free! Thanks again for all your help with our program. Chat soon.
