Event Description

This 2 day course is for food gardeners and hobby farmers already using organic methods. It covers a mixture of theory and practice, building a framework of understanding for you to work with biodynamics to improve your soil, garden productivity and food quality, and at the same time, raise your awareness into the deeper spirit of nature.

You will gain an understanding of biodynamic gardening principles, how to use the biodynamic preparations, work in tune with the planets, make biodynamic compost and tree paste. We will also delve into biodynamic weed and pest control, liquid manures and general organic gardening methods.

 We both found the September biodynamic gardening course very informative and interesting and it stimulated a strong interest in biodynamics. Peter, you are a gifted teacher and are quite clearly very passionate about what you do and we are both looking forward to growing much healthier food - which was our aim in doing the course. We felt very welcome at your lovely property- and the afternoon tea was delicious”. Marion and Geoff Harrington, Beaudesert

Peter Kearney is the course presenter and organic gardener. Peter has worked with and studied biodynamic gardening methods for over 9 years, is founder of and has conducted these courses regularly since late 2008. Peter talks from his own study and practice on his property in Samford. This moves the concepts of biodynamics into very practical application for gardeners of any standard.
