Biodynamics is a spiritual-ethical-ecological approach to agriculture, food production and nutrition. Biodynamics was first developed in the early 1920s based on the spiritual insights and practical suggestions of the Austrian writer and educator, Rudolf Steiner.
It has been described as "Activating Nature".
We are running a series of biodynamic workshops at Bellbunya for beginners - 5 days, monthly series begins 22 June, 9.30 am to 3.30 pm. You can attend full series or individual workshops (see below).

Do you appreciate learning in combination of theory and practical, hands-on?
