Quotes

For some, the organic label on a food product will be the determining factor as to whether to buy it or not. But the issues which apply to conventional food marketing, such as nutrition value, taste and convenience, are proving as important when targeting organic produce to consumers. Bush Telegraph, March 26, 2008, Marketing Organics

Everybody who's spoken at TED has told us implicitly, or sometimes explicitly, that life is not linear, it's organic. We create our lives symbiotically as we explore our talents in relation to the circumstances they help to create for us.
Ken Richardson, Bring on the learning revolution

Biodynamic

On paper, biodynamic grape growing sounds a bit like hippy witchcraft. Spraying the vineyard with a cow poo concoction under a descending moon and picking grapes when the moon is in the fire constellation. But some of our most established and highly regarded vineyards, like South Australia's Henschke and West Australia's Cullen Wines, are embracing it with gusto.
