Farming Without Chemicals: How Can It Be Done?

Andre Leu is an Australian organic farmer, an internationally recognised speaker, the author of ‘The Myths of Safe Pesticides’ and “Poisoning Our Children”. He was past President of IFOAM (The International Federation of Organic Agriculture Movements). and presently he is the international director of Regeneration International. As a child Andre suffered from the effects of the chemicals used on the family farm and was often ill. This experience led him to become an organic farmer and for the past 40 years has worked in all areas of organic agriculture, from growing crops, pest-control, weed management, marketing and post-harvest transport to grower organisations, developing new crops and education – not only in his home country Australia, but across Asia, Europe, the Americas and Africa.
