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.

Registration in advance is required to secure your place, contact for registration details.

Using the Site, Sharing and Getting Involved


We love your garden pics! Just be sure to remove the location information from your picture if you're sharing photos from your IPhone to avoid sending your details out to the world wide web. To find out how to do this, click here.

Note that on the main page only the most recent discussion activity is displayed.

If you want to explore all of the forum, go to or select Forum in the red menu bar which runs across the top of the home page. 

Choose to view by category (e.g. Plant and Seed Varieties, Books and Movies) or by most recent/ popular etc - use view drop down at top right of page.

If you wish to follow a discussion (you'll be notified of replies) select <Follow> at the extreme bottom right of the relevant discussion.

Some good discussions/ answers have been moved over into the FAQ forum topic for ease of reference.


Ning provides a search engine for the entire BLF site (extreme top right in the dark green bar). 

Each part of the website can also be searched separately. Navigate to the particular area (was it a photo, a discussion, a blog?) using the red menu on the top of the home page. Then search within that section, using the search bar at top left in the white part of the page. This will narrow your search results markedly. 



The blog (web-log) section is best for diary-style posts covering multiple topics - like what you've been up to in your own garden. The discussion forum is better for single topics and where other people can build on what you've said.

Please use the discussion forum or message function where you can. People are less likely to find your topic in future when browsing if it's in the blog section.

Please try to post blogs once a week or less (save it up and post all at once!), to maximise the air time on the main page for other blog posters. Love it, but we have to share the space :)

When you start a discussion or a blog, adding some key words in the "add tags" field will help other people to find the content they're looking for later on (using the search engine).

If in doubt just ask or post anyway! :)
