IFarmwell work-life balance workshop

4 August 2023 @ 5:30 pm - 8:30 pm

Big crops and rain delays meant the 2022-23 harvest was a long one. Then, all of a sudden, seeding for the 2023 season was upon us. There wasn’t much time to relax and recharge for the season ahead.

If this sounds like your experience, and you’ve started to consider how you can create a sustainable work-balance for your family and farm, this night out is for you.

Grab the family, head into town and join us for dinner and an entertaining evening as we take a light-hearted look at a serious topic.

This interactive, farmer-led discussion will cover the following topics:

  • What is work-life balance in a farming context, anyway?
  • Why is it hard to achieve?
  • Why is it important?
  • What practical changes can we make to our lives?

Featuring the well-loved characters from the acclaimed Kick Off Ya Boots production.

This workshop will be facilitated by Mallee farmer John Gladigau. ifarmwell founder and clinical psychologist Associate Professor Kate Gunn will also be in attendance.

This workshop is brought to you by ifarmwell and the University of South Australia’s Department of Rural Health, in partnership with Kick Off Ya Boots. It is supported by the Australian Government’s Future Drought Fund, Ag Innovation and Research Eyre Peninsula (AIR EP), Primary Producers SA and Grain Producers SA.

* Please note, as this is funded by a FDF Proof of Concept Grant, the farmer facilitators will be filmed delivering this workshop. As participants, you will not be deliberately filmed, but your voice may be captured on the video. If you wish for any recordings of you to be deleted from the video (which will be used for training purposes), please notify Kate Gunn via kate.gunn@unisa.edu.au now or on the night, and this can be easily accommodated. Thank you for your understanding.
