Hugh Williams, a biodynamic farmer well known in the Hudson River Valley area of NY state, will be in Ontario in early January to give talks as part of the Grey-Bruce Farmers’ Week held in Elmwood (just north of Hanover). Hugh will be making three presentations on Tuesday January 8th (the Ecological Day of the Farmers’ week). In the morning he will talk onBiodynamics And Holism: A Key To The Future of Farming. In the afternoon Hugh will present on Whole Farm Keyline Planning: Protect Your Land From Drought, Floods and Climate Change. The day will wind up with a Producer Panel Discussion focused on Ecological Apple Production which Hugh will also participate in.
If you’re not already familiar, Hugh possesses a rich combination of deep and forward looking understanding of biodynamics grounded in many years of its practical practise in farming and orcharding and he is able to communicate that knowledge and experience in particularly engaging and expanding ways. While the focus of the Grey-Bruce forum will be for a general audience who may not yet be familiar with biodynamics, there will surely be rich gleanings for everyone.
