The mission of the Fellowship of the Preparation Makers is to help ensure the availability of high quality biodynamic preparations in North American into the future. We gather each year to share what we have learned and expand our understanding in fellowship with one another. The
Fellowship welcomes and encourages preparations makers at all stages of interest to join us.

In the middle point of the Agriculture Course, Steiner tells us we should and, needless to say, will go on manuring as before, and that the manure must be subjected to a proper treatment so as to quicken and vitalize it sufficiently. This year we’ll explore how this treatment, known as the
biodynamic compost preparations, helps create the organs of the farm organism.

Bring any compost preparations you’ve made, including ones you are not satisfied with, so we can show and tell and learn together. Friday will feature seasoned “fellows” examining the preparations in depth, while Saturday will be more general education of
preparation making.
