André Leu was named international director of Regeneration International in 2017. Previously he was president of IFOAM—Organics International, the international umbrella organization for the organic sector. IFOAM, which has about 850 member organisations in 127 countries, was a founding member of RI. During his tenure as president of IFOAM, Leu served on the RI steering committee.
During 40-plus years of visiting and working in more than 100 countries, Leu acquired an extensive knowledge of farming and environmental systems across Asia, Europe, the Americas, Africa and Australasia. He and his wife, Julia, run an organic tropical fruit farm in Daintree, Australia.
Leu is an international lecturer who has spoken at the United Nations and at conferences, seminars, universities and workshops. He advises governments, industry, farmers, consumers and NGOs on the multi-functional benefits of regenerative organic agriculture.
He is the author of “Poisoning our Children” and the “Myths of Safe Pesticides.” He has contributed articles to magazines, newspapers, journals, conference proceedings, newsletters and websites.
In this podcast we discuss Andre's career, his love of exotic fruit trees, the 80 something poisons sprayed on our food in Australia via corrupt corporate agendas and the captured regulatory agencies that are meant to protect us. Glyphosate and other poisons impacts on our bodies and in particular unborn babies. Most importantly what we can do about it and the importance of the grass roots movement towards local, small scale organic food.
