Event Description

Featuring Laura Riccardi Lyvers

In order to enliven &andspiritualize our food, our agriculture and our thinking — the purpose of biodynamics — we need to understand how spirit works behind physical matter. This lifelong journey can start with foundational concepts such as: 

  • The four elements of earth, water, air and fire in the plant, landscape and in processes
  • The biodynamic preparations 500 and 501 — polarity, rhythms in nature and balance
  • The farm as an organism and the subtle forces of a diverse ecosystem
In this introductory session we will explore these insights towards creating Sacred Agriculture, and share techniques and equipment to apply biodynamic practices, whether to 700 acres of pasture or to 1 acre of garden.
