About the Author

Peter Bacchus has years of biodynamic farming experience. Raised on a biodynamic dairy farm, he served apprenticeships on other dairy farms while growing up. He studied and worked on biodynamic farms and in a nutritional research laboratory in Switzerland, working with some of the most prominent biodynamic farming consultants and learning the sensitive crystallization and climbing chromatography research methods. Later he worked as a medicinal herb grower, developed a large-scale composting business, and converted a commercial glass house to the biodynamic method, which included successful control of whitefly and fungal problems. Bacchus consults widely and has held leadership positions in biodynamic farming organizations. He lives with his wife Gill near Palmerston, on the south island of New Zealand.
