Featuring Mark Shepard
Nearly ninety years ago during the Agriculture Course in Koeberwitz, Rudolf Steiner made recurring references to designing the farm as a closed-loop, individual farm entity. He suggested that in order for a farm to be truly self-sustaining it should have the proper mix of trees and shrubs, bushes and vines. The pastures should be meadows with an abundant mix of aromatic herbs flowers and fungi. Join lifelong biodynamic grower, agroforester and permaculture teacher Mark Shepard to explore the common threads that weave together biodynamic agriculture and permaculture. Learn how to consciously join with the non-material forces of your "place" in order to restore the processes of soil creation, pest and disease control, biodiversity and optimum system health.
