Hi Elaine

Thanks for your comments. Here is some extra information:


This 2 day course is for food gardeners already using organic methods. It covers a mixture of theory and practice. The course builds 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 learn biodynamic gardening principles, how to use 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.


Afternoon tea and morning coffee/herb teas from garden, comprehensive written training materials, biodynamic preparations to get you started, ongoing support online and connection to a network of local gardeners working with BD practices. Bring along your lunch and gardening clothing.

Time and fee:

Starts at 9.15 and ends at 4.30 pm each day. For two people coming along together the cost will be $240x2 less $20x2 (couples discount) = $440. I would be happy to email you our course registration information. My email is

A quick outline will make it simpler for us to decide whether to come or not ... specifically, what is the total price for two? Afternoon tea - er, what about morning tea and lunch? Do we bring our own to share? Time of start and finish will be useful, too.
