Course Content

How can you better foster biologically dynamic soils? How does biodynamics fit into regenerative approaches to the soil? Whether you farm the same plot for a lifetime or manage different soil types, attaining a biodynamic "overview" will help you produce better results on almost any soil type. You have your own soil to manage, but there is a lot to learn by comparing and contrasting your soil type with other soils. Join us for our new five-part overview of managing humus and cultivating sandy, clayey, and chalky soils. Hear from four different speakers all with over a decade of experience in their field.
