This hands on workshop will include making and using Biodynamic Tree Paste for deciduous, pruned and exhausted trees. Tree paste nourishes the tree through its bark and cambium (the ever growing layer under the bark), so it is applied to the bark of trees rather than the soil. Tree paste seals and heals pruning wounds, fills crevices where pests can over-winter and it is also highly effective in ridding trees of scale, borer, and disease infestations. Even if you have already pruned your trees, this tree paste is still beneficial to apply at this time.Tree paste does wonders for the health of trees, but it also demonstrates the wisdom of Rudolf Steiner's concept of the trunk of a tree being likened to an elongated mound of earth, upon which plants (leaves) grow.
