This experiential two day workshop gives you a balance of both practical and theory in a great setting on 5 acres at 7 Hogan Court, Camp Mountain, QLD. It's only 30 minutes from the Brisbane CBD and 5 minutes to our local railway station. Low cost local homestay is available. The property has very well established gardens and has been worked with biodynamic practices. The place has a beautiful feel, the bird sounds are ever present.
The workshop is suitable for food growers from small scale to hobby farmers who are interested in ramping up their organic food production, whilst developing an appreciation of the deeper spirit of nature. It's ideal that you have some experience of organic food growing, but we have catered for beginners. 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.
The workshop content is contexualised to the food growing spaces at the venue and the presenter also works closely with each participant to ensure there is an action plan to bring all content into the context of their own food growing spaces. Workshop participant numbers are a maxium of 12 people.
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 philisophical framework that drives all biodynamic processes so you can work with them from a place of knowing
Immerse yourself in our 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
