Join us, for our annual Spring workshop and hands-on presentation day!
Come help bury the biodynamic preps! We begin early, but welcome people whenever they come. Please bring a brown bag lunch and a potluck dish for supper.
Biodynamic Composting and Stirring of Horn Manure
Composting is at the heart of biodynamics. When using biodynamic compost healing forces infuse and restore the soil. We will build a compost pile together and learn how to inoculate it with the compost preparations.
We will round out the series by stirring and applying the horn manure preparation, a portion of which you may take home to apply on your garden. This preparation stimulates root growth and enlivens the soil.
