Rudolf Steiner, the Austrian philosopher, scientist and educator, introduced biodynamic agriculture to a group of farmers in 1924. He often discusses the idea of a “farm organism”, a system of interlocking facets combining minerals and soil, plants, animals, humans, and planetary forces. Form evolves through an integration of earthly and cosmic forces that give shape and meaning to the way we view and experience all the varied elements in our farm landscape.
In this follow-up to the introductory lecture held in September 2012, we will take a look at the essentials of biodynamic agriculture, particularly from a home scale, gardening perspective in this day-long intensive class. Much of the class will take place outside, please dress appropriately.
This course is being offered both as an individual classes as well as with the eight-day Permaculture Design Certificate Course offered March 23-30, 2013, but registration is extremely limited.
