Audrey Windram is a living treasure of Australian organics. She has been ‘fighting the good fight’ to advance the cause of organics for the best part of half a century. When it comes to organics, Audrey leads by example. She has been living the organic life, variously as an organics pioneer, producer, evangelist, educator and author, all the while ‘practising what she preaches’ and preaching in the most gentle of ways. It is a delight to commend Audrey Windram’s latest book The Organic Grower on the fortieth anniversary of the publication of her first organics book. Organic Gardening originally appeared in 1975 as a Rigby Instant Book. It was a mass-market book distributed throughout Australia. The organics enterprise must continue to draw strength from the validity of its foundational premises and continue the fight which Lord Northbourne warned in 1940 may be a fight lasting “for many decades, perhaps for centuries”. In The Organic Grower Audrey Windram brings together four publications, Organic Gardening, the two volumes of Meet the Organic Farmer, together with Ways of Being Organic. Enjoy it!
