Event Description

This 2 day course for food gardeners and hobby farmers already using organic methods covers a mixture of theory and practice. The course builds a framework of understanding for you to work with biodynamics to improve your soil, garden productivity and food quality, and at the same time, raise your awareness into the deeper spirit of nature. You will learn biodynamic gardening principles, how to use biodynamic preparations, work in tune with the planets, make biodynamic compost and tree paste. We will also delve into biodynamic weed and pest control, liquid manures and general organic gardening methods. You will learn to appreciate how cost effective it is to work with biodynamics.
