Understanding and making the Biodynamic preparations
This workshop will give both beginners and experienced farmers a solid basis for understanding the major ideas and principles of Biodynamic Agriculture. Biodynamics is practiced on millions of acres in all climates for the best possible nutritional results as well as for the step that needs to be taken to go toward a thriving farm or garden organism. To learn the spiritual foundation for a necessary renewal of agriculture is the call of our time. Come and join biodynamic practitioner and teacher Gunther Hauk as he shares with us over 40 years of experience.
