The Section for Agriculture is headed by a team of two: Jean-Michel Florin and Ueli Hurter.
Since April 2018, André Hach has been a member of the event organisation staff in the Section for Agriculture. The proximity to agriculture was given by the parental farm in the Western Palatinate. Early on he developed a special interest for the coexistence of plants, insects, animals and humans. In addition to his master's degree in organic farming in Eberswalde near Berlin, he worked professionally and voluntarily in event management. He wants to make his motivation and experience fruitful at the Goetheanum in terms of sustainable agriculture.
