Event Description

This workshop will discuss how to emulate nature to develop an intimate relationship with a piece of land. This is done by evaluating amd monitoring all components of the given ecosystem. The idea is to enhance the symbiotic relationship amongst the various species. Finding one's place in the ecosystem allows coexistence and adapatability with the gardener or farmer. In other words, the garden makes the gardener. The subjects covered will be ecology, agroecology, biodynamics, permaculture design, organic IPM, polyculture, and companion planting, as well as regenerative practices of nutrient cycling and soil building. The workshop content is complementary to Frank Holzman's new book, Radical Regenerative Gardening and Farming, Biodynamic Principles and Perspectives, published by Rowman and Littlefield 2018 and based on his 40+ years of working in organic horticulture and agriculture.
