Meet Graeme!

Graeme has over 30 years experience in the horticultural industry, in all sorts of roles. 

Born in Pongakawa in the Bay of Plenty, Graeme has lived here for all of his life. Over this time Graeme has held multiple roles within the horticultural and agricultural industries, and 30 years ago he noticed a gap in the market for good quality, organic biological products for orchardists and soils - and Eco Logic Concepts was born!

 

Since then, Graeme has developed an impressive portfolio of biological products that have lead to improved soil health, increased yield and bigger, healthier plants. He has a diverse range of experiences and qualifications in the following fields;

  • Forestry nursery with hardwoods and other alternatives to pine

  • Fruit tree nursery with pears, nashi, avocados, kiwifruit, pip fruit and sub tropicals

  • Medicinal herbs nursery where he grew for growers, also in the field and was involved in the full spectrum of growing, harvesting, processing and marketing

  • Fully qualified automotive technician

  • Trained as a Soil Foodweb advisor (now called a friend of the soil foodweb) under Dr Elaine Ingham from the USA, a guru of microbiology

  • Have attended numerous organic courses including with Arden Anderson who specialises in biological farming in the States.

  • 30 years hands on experience from orchard development to production and marketing.

  • Fully biogro certified for almost 30 years (biogro number 233) and certified as a primary producer (produce grown) and an input supplier (eco-products we sell)

 

Outside of the shed, Graeme enjoys fishing, camping and spending time with Tracey, his wife, and their combined eight children, and four grandchildren!
