Organic Pioneer Communicator
Honoured at Organic Connections 2006
Paul was the founder of Earthcare, a dynamic discussion group interested in organic and biodynamic agriculture. This organization evolved into Earthcare Connections in 1998. Paul also organized a series of ‘alternate’ agriculture conferences in conjunction with the University of Regina’s Extension Division, Sask. Agriculture and other organizations. In 1980 Paul edited Earthcare: Ecological Agriculture in Saskatchewan. This was the first book published that addressed organic agricultural production on the Canadian prairies. It combined scientific research, farm profiles and anecdotal information. From the establishment of an information centre in Wynyard in 1978 to his work with EarthCare, Paul has been one of the key sources of Organic information for this province.
