Summary

Ernesto Genoni was Australia's pioneer of biodynamic and organic farming. He was the first Australian member of Rudolf Steiner's Experimental Circle of Anthroposophical Farmers and Gardeners. In the inaugural Uriel Lecture of the Anthroposophical Society of Australia, Dr John Paull reveals Ernesto's training in art at the Brera Academy of Fine Art in Milan, his enlistment in the AIF in Western Australia and WWI service as a stretcher bearer on the Somme, his conscription off the battlefields of the Western Front into the Italian Army and his imprisonment in Italy as a conscientious objector, his training with Dr Rudolf Steiner in Dornach, Switzerland, his introduction of biodynamics to Australia, his grand tour of biodynamic farms in Europe, and his founding of Australia's original 'Demeter Farm'.
