Biodynamic Gardening Workshop

March 17 @ 10:00 am - 2:00 pm

March 17th, 2018

Alexandria, VA

Biodynamics is the holistic, ecological, and ethical approach to farming, gardening, food, and nutrition. Biodynamic farmers strive to create a diversified, balanced farm ecosystem that generates health and fertility as much as possible from within the farm itself. Preparations made from fermented manure, minerals, and herbs are used to help restore and harmonize the vital life forces of the farm and to enhance the nutrition, quality, and flavor of the food being raised. At this hands-on workshop, join Abby Porter, daughter of biodynamics pioneer Josephine Porter and formerly a board member at the Josephine Porter Institute for Applied Biodynamics, as she shows you how to get started on your Biodynamic Garden.

Cost: Free. Donations accepted.
Please bring a lunch.
The workshop will include classroom presentation and hands-on work in PCWS’s garden. Please dress in comfortable clothing for garden work.

Please note that this workshop is for adults only. We will have childcare available for children enrolled at PCWS; please contact the office for childcare information.
