Event Description

Biodynamic preparations, along with application of the principles underlying their use, are an artist's palette of colors to create landscapes that give rise to vibrant life as well as food, fiber, and raw materials of amazing quality and abundance. Though often biodynamics is referred to as a practice, its more skilled practitioners may think of it as an art form that produces the nuttiest winter spinach; the most inspiring tarragon, basil, or ginger; the most delicious apples or cherries; and the subtlest fine wines. Problems endemic in organic and biological systems can be avoided before they arise because pests and diseases are messengers telling us what we are doing wrong. The essence of biodynamics is learning to do things the easy way — like leading a herd of cattle with feed rather than driving them with whips and dogs.
