Event Description

Six of the preparations that we make and use as biodynamic farmers and gardeners are for the compost heap! The world needs more biodynamic compost. An introductory look at how we produce biodynamic compost on a large scale and how the compost creates a community of people working towards biodynamic farming principles. A detailed outline of how to produce high-quality biodynamic compost on a large scale will be presented. Then we will explore the wonders of compost, which not only works its wonders in the gardens and farms of the community, but also creates social and economic networks. We will share how the compost has helped to create trade partnerships without money, inspired social activities for preparation ingredients, brought people from various different backgrounds together, and many more stories. We will share in detail how we actually make high-quality biodynamic compost on this scale. Topics will include recipe formation, turning schedules, troubleshooting, and quality control.
