SOIL.

Transforming the heart of agriculture means transforming how we think about and work with the soil. Biodynamics is a holistic, ecological, and ethical approach to farming and gardening that offers practical tools and insights to help us bring renewed health and vitality to soil, as well as the plants, animals, and people who depend on it.

JUSTICE.

Transforming the heart of agriculture means transforming our human relationships. As we recognize the history and current reality of racism and other forms of oppression, how can we contribute to building equity, inclusion, and true community within and connected to agriculture? Explore diverse agriculture traditions, new relationships and collaborations, and innovative approaches to the social and economic dimensions of farming.

REGENERATION.

Transforming the heart of agriculture means leveraging a diversity of tools to regenerate our earth, our communities, and our spirits. How can biodynamics, regenerative agriculture, permaculture, organic, agroecology, holistic management, natural medicine, associative economics, and the many other movements for positive change work together, and what unique perspectives can biodynamics add to the conversation?
