Event Description

The attendees of Rudolf Steiner’s Agriculture Lectures in 1924 were farmers and students of anthroposophy. These farmers had studied the basic books of anthroposophy, including Theosophy and Occult Science, and so Steiner spoke to this audience without having to go into the underlying spiritual-scientific conceptions of the human being and Earth evolution, which are the basis for the language and narrative of the Agriculture Lectures. For the last 100 years, biodynamics has grown tremendously across the globe from these spiritual foundations into a practical form of growing food in partnership with the living Earth. During this three-day themed workshop series, we will begin from the spiritual foundations of biodynamics in order to lay the ground for an overview of biodynamic agricultural practices, and finish our time together with practical instructions for making and working with the biodynamic preparations.
