Event Description

Modern biological farming practices, including organic and biodynamic, include many practical requirements, down to actual soil testing and fertilization formulae. Yet most guidelines and methods used by labs offering insights in this soil field are markedly reductionistic and mechanistic, based on the long history of scientific-industrial manipulation of nature and conventional academic research supporting it. Soil Labs generally do not acknowledge or affirm non-reductionistic models and have not received training in it. This workshop will explore the potentials and the limitations of modern soil analysis approaches to aid in biodynamic farm work.
