Hawthorne Valley is pleased to feature one of its longest standing coworkers, Gary Lamb. Gary is currently the director of the Hawthorne Valley Center for Social Research and its Ethical Technology Initiative. His most recent publication, A Road to Sacred Creation: Rudolf Steiner’s Perspectives on Technology, Volume 1, was released in August 2021 by SteinerBooks.

“Gary has served in many roles at Hawthorne Valley since the 1980s,” says Martin Ping, Executive Director. “It is always a pleasure to speak to him about Rudolf Steiner’s ideas on economics and the impact of technology on our society, and we’re excited to be able to share his insights through our Roots to Renewal podcast.”

Over his 36 years of employment at Hawthorne Valley, Gary also served the Farm Store manager, school development and admissions director, and high school economics teacher. His professional background includes a degree in civil technology and mathematics, and employment in the fields of building construction, medical technology, and manufacturing.
