That's my life ...

Guru Geri in Switzerland

I was in Switzerland for the first time in 1983. In the Rhine Falls across the border and on the way to the Dolomites. Since then I have been to Switzerland very often, perhaps the country where I was most, except for Germany. I once visited Sigrid Kortenhaus in Dornach in 1985, then Gundi in 1987 and 1988 on the Schlanz Alp. In the nineties then only 1991 with the pregnant Klaudi on the Alp Schlanz near Jogi and Fluela near Davos. I was only in Switzerland again in 2000 at the IFOAM conference in Basel. Slept in Dornach. Then I was in Switzerland once or several times every year. So in 2003 and 2004 we went on holiday on the Schüderli Älpli near Gundi (one week each). Then we visited FiBL even more frequently: for closed conferences, to get to know each other, for DOC rehearsals or project discussions. In 2006 I flew to Dornach to visit Nicolai Fuchs as Section Leader of the Goetheanum.

  • 2007 Klaudia visited the alp Flüela (Davos) for 5 days. She is a shepherdess there. A beautiful world.
  • In 2008 I visited Switzerland 3 times: Alp, Frick (2x).
  • The same in 2009: in Zurich in March there was the scientific conference on organic farming, where I took part for 3 days.
  • In summer 2009 and 2012 again on the Flüela-Alp. 
  • On the hayloft of Alp Schlanz I wrote my diploma thesis about Malawi in 1989.
  • Here on Alp Schlanz I typed my diploma thesis (Malawi) on the hayloft.
  • In 2010 I was with Klaudia for 4 days on the Möschberg together with the Federal Expert Committee "Basics" of the Bioland Association. This place in Emmental has a deep meaning for organic agriculture. After the Second World War, Mrs. Müller and Mr. Müller helped to design organic-biological agriculture here.
  • 2012 again in Switzerland, because of work in Frick (FibL) for 2 days.
  • Then again in 2015 for 3 days, once again in Dornach at the agricultural conference of the Anthroposophical Society.
  • 2021 I joined the Bioland excursion to sheep keeping farms in Graubünden. 
  • 2023 Klaudia and I visited Urs Niggli and Helga Willer in Frick for one nigth, and did some hiking in the mountains close to San Bernadino in Sufers and Splügen.
