Biodynamic Orchard Care and Fruit Tree Pruning with Dan Crebbin
We will discuss orchard site selection, planting techniques, pests and diseases, biodynamic applications, restoration of heritage trees, and orchard maintenance. We will have an extensive field component on tree pruning and root care.
At the heart of Rudolf Steiner College sits Raphael Garden, our 3-acre, Demeter-certified biodynamic farm. Founded in 1987, the farm supports seasonal fruit, year-round vegetables, a large seed saving operation, farm animals and natural beekeeping, in a beautiful, serene setting. Our Perspectives on Biodynamics Workshop Series is held one Saturday each month for nine months from September to May, with a five-day intensive in June and Steiner’s Lectures on Agriculture is a lecture/study series on Tuesdays from September to November.
