After catered breakfasts early on Saturday and Sunday mornings, Alexander and several eurythmists from the American Eurythmy School will be leading eurythmy sessions.
Dennis Klocek will also be doing a keynote speech at 10 am, on Saturday, the 11th. In his talk, Three American Agricultural Economies, he will be discussing the evolution of regenerative and sustainable agricultural practices as they have appeared within the context of farming economies in America. Today, we strive to develop viable, heartfelt agricultural economic models, as humans engage in continuing efforts to adapt to the complexities of climate change-- and to meet the challenge to develop deep humanitarian, political and sacred best practices for the future.
