In the middle of the cold winter, we farmers get to sit and think thoughts, and imagine the wonderful things we will create when warmth returns with spring. It was January 2016 when I attended the Pfeiffer Center Midwinter Agricultural Intensive. We focused on the study of two biodynamic preparation plants: yarrow and dandelion. This study inspired me to start an event on (then) KK’s The Farm, which I called the Dandelion Festival. I wish everybody would host an event dedicated to the dandelion to celebrate the wonders of spring.
In our studies, longtime biodynamic practitioner and teacher, Harald Hoven, instructed us to stand next to the dandelion and to observe the plant, first looking at it out of focus then in focus. I asked inwardly, "May I know who you are?"

“Hello! We’re new around here and really excited to be a part of things, but you might need to show us around a little.” There’s really no better way for us to start. The two of us, Isaac and Josh, are both newcomers to biodynamics, new to Demeter certification, and we happen to be working with hemp, an area that is also somewhat new to biodynamics. We are new faces in a newer industry to biodynamics, and it is a beautiful place to be.
