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 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.


On Saturday the 7th and 14th of May 2011 from 9.15am-4.30pm.


Peter Kearney is an experienced course presenter and organic gardener. Peter has worked with and studied biodynamic gardening methods for over 9 years.

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


Afternoon tea, comprehensive written training materials, biodynamic preparations to get you started and ongoing support online.

All I can suggest to your comments Phil is to work with biodynamics and observe it for yourself with an open mind. The results will tell you, but as with all things in life, having the right attitude about what you do is vital. The highest quality organic produce in farming is biodynamically grown, just do a search on the web or go to an organic shop or bottle shop and you can find that out quite easily.


Personally I think having some magic in your life is a good thing and if the mysteries of biodynamics look like magic to some people, then so be it.

You could be missing out on some truly amazing results Phil. Personally I have found the BD preps to be quite wonderful; you don't have to follow the moon planting to get good results. It gets down to really healthy soil and there's many ways to achieve that.

Biodynamic gardening is a bunch of magic hocus-pocus.  It has zero value, it is total gibberish.
