At this years farmers camp, Mike will explore the power of the Psalms and their relevance to our lives.

John Gladigau

John Gladigau is many things: Husband to Bronny, father to two kids, owner of a 2000 ha propety at Alawoona, partner in a 11,000 ha collaborative farm “Bulla Burra” and a Nuffield Scholar who travelled the world in 2007 looking at alternate business models resulting in the creation of Bulla Burra in 2009.

In his spare time he also likes to help people unearth their own passions. John’s also writes plays! John’s Town Christmas and Easter productions have collectively been seen by nearly 40,000 people. John’s personal faith challenges him to be obedient to God’s call – in all aspects of his farming and personal life. Even when he doesn’t want to!

The story of how they went from inner city living, and climbing the corporate ladder to starting their own farming business is one of challenges, uncertainty, and most of all, faith.
