"Over the decades, Gerry's focus on the practicalities of returning organic matter to soil and soil health has been unswerving and insightful.
His work in New Zealand leaves an enduring legacy.
Gerry is a visionary and has operated with a longer horizon than most.
It has been a privilege to have spent much time with Gerry in both Australia and New Zealand examining the interconnectedness of biological processes and production systems, searching for best practice.
As a farmer I have greatly valued his respect for the land and those who work it along with his generous sharing of his enthusasim and considerable accumulated knowledge from his international connections.
I highly value his collaborative approach".
"I thought the workshop was terrific and Gerry Gillespie was especially good value and most generous with help after the workshop. He obviously has a lot of knowledge about other areas of interest to biological farmers. I felt he hadn't scratched the surface with what he was trying to tell us".
" I have worked with Gerry on a number of composting and farmer projects over the last few years and have found his innovative approach to composting and reuse of organic materials into agriculture to be highly professional and effective. His evident practical and technical knowledge in this area is apparent as is his skills at working with farmer groups and other various stakeholders. His passion and vision for a sustainable future for Australia is also very praiseworthy"
