Event Description

Our second 2 two day biodynamic gardening course for 2013 is on the 28-28 July.

This course gives you a comprehensive introduction to the theory and practice of this fascinating, cost effective and highly productive method of growing food. You will find that the level of inputs required to produce healthy foods is greatly reduced by adding biodynamic methods to your organic gardening practices.  We cover vegetables, herbs, fruit trees and pasture for small scale gardeners and hobby farmers. 

Its handy to have some experience with organic growing to begin with, however we also cover a lot of organic growing principles in the context of biodynamics.

The course presenter is Peter Kearney. Peter has extensive training in biodynamics, has used it on his place for 11 years and has conducted these courses for 4 years. The course is run in his beautiful gardens and part of the joy of the course is connecting with other people over the 2 days who have a desire to explore the deeper spirit of nature.

A very enjoyable course! As a trainer, I can see it has been well thought out and had a good pace for me - introducing the essential ideas of biodynamics clearly and without overload. There was a good balance of theory / discussion and practice. The setting was perfect and atmosphere relaxed. I like the format of two Saturdays as it gave me time to mull things over. One of the best aspects was going home at the end with some biodynamic preparations so that I could actually start working with these practices at home. All in all - the course got me started which is exactly what I needed”. Paul Monsour, Brisbane

The course fee is $240 per person with a $20 discount each for couples. The fee includes scrumptious afternoon teas each day, printed training material and biodynamic preparations to get you started.
