Lynton Greenwood is Director and Owner of Greenwood Orchards & Enterprises P/L, established in 1906. Greenwood Orchards (website) is located at Merrigum in the Goulburn Valley, and is a certified Australian Demeter Bio-Dynamic Apple and Pear orchard, selling whole fruit and fruit juices. The orchard has been managed under Australian Demeter Biodynamic methods since 1966.
Lynton is Chairman of the Board for the Bio Dynamic Research Institute, a non-profit Australian government accredited Organic Certifying Organisation.
The Bio-Dynamic Research Institute itself is a non-profit company engaging ethical practices. It is not a certification business in the current sense of this term. Rather it demands highest quality application of the bio-dynamic method, strongly supports family farms and businesses, and encourages community based, sustainable, ecological activities. Under Lynton’s guidance, the Research Institute has stood firm and committed to its charter notwithstanding the current corporatisation that is occurring within the organic industry.
