for a youth conference!
Join us October 26th through the 28th for hands-on instruction in Biodynamic Preparation making!
Participants will help make 4 of the 9 biodynamic preparations and learn how to use these to enhance the quality and quantity of life in your garden and/or farm. You will work with experienced biodynamic practitioners and the staff at JPI to collect and create these soil-enlivening therapies.
Come join us as we celebrate the health, joy, and tradition of artisan sourdough bread baking at the Honeybee Sanctuary. This workshop will delve into the life and vitality of natural yeast, the light and health of freshly milled grains, and the all-encompassing warmth of our Quebec Earth Oven. Each participant will have the opportunity to practice and witness the process, as practical learning will be paired with demonstration and lecture.
