John has a Bachelor of Agricultural Science and Order of Australia for his services to the environment. He has also lived in the base of a tree. There is no denying this man knows his foliage.

We are so lucky to be able to welcome local legend, ‘Earthman’ John Palmer as our Bush Kindy Explorers Expert trainer. John has an incredible depth of knowledge to share and will walk with the children and teachers on our outings one day per week. He will work with the teachers to develop the full scope of the Bush Kindy Explorer program.

John has an amazing depth of knowledge about indigenous Australia and especially the land here on the Gold Coast. John is the resident land guide and expert at Gwingana Health Retreat at Currumbin we are very pleased that he is willing to join our team at Bush Kindy Explorers.

Those who have met John know that his knowledge is astounding and endless, his wisdom is second to none, but it’s his passion for the environment and the way he walks his talk that is the true gift received from any interaction one is fortunate enough to have with him.
