In his youth, Peter Finch wove his way through a series of exploits and adventures. Travels took him to
where a fateful encounter in the Rocky Mountains
opened up new horizons. In midlife he and his wife Gundi made the shift to
country living, ushering in a new phase in their life, as they set down roots
in the hills and settled into a deliberately simplified lifestyle.
Peter relates how he and Gundi immersed themselves in ways guided by nature.

Invigorated by the pleasures and health benefits of growing, selling, and
eating fresh organic food, Peter reveals how he became a passionate advocate of
traditional, small-scale, chemical-free farming. Toronto
