If you have already studied permaculture, you will find the workshop extends your existing knowledge, adding a new and interesting perspective to maximising the effectiveness of your food growing activities.
During the 2 days, Saturday and Sunday, you will:
Work with our vegetable growing and orchard areas gaining practical experience of how to work with organic and biodynamic methods
Understand the philosophical framework that drives all biodynamic processes so you can work with them from a placing of knowing.
Immerse yourself in our beautiful nurturing space and be well fed with biodynamically grown food, so you appreciate the end point, healthy enlivened food
Appreciate how biodynamic methods will fit into the rhythm of your organic food growing system to produce the highest quality organic food.
