Born in Switzerland in 1949, Gysi lived in several countries before immigrating to Canada in 1981 with his wife and their two children. With illustrations and drawings, his text for Harmonic Farming: a love style (Gooly Mooly Publishing, 1995) is derived from their experiences living off the land at their Gooly Mooly Art Farm near Enderby, B.C. The term Gooly Mooly is an Anglicization of two Swiss words. The manual is chiefly concerned with practical advice on everything from manure and freezing beans to beekeeping and making liqueur.
