Using Rudolf Steiner’s agriculture course as a foundation, we will explore “the seed” in its dynamic and complex relationship to the depths of the Earth, the expanses of the cosmos, and the agricultural individuality. Working in large and small groups, through art, movement, plant observation, and hands-on seed work (threshing and winnowing), we will delve into the mysteries of the seed-forming process.
