What is biodynamics? There is so much to discover about this modern organic way of agriculture and land care, which works not merely to maintain, but to raise the vitality of the soil and its produce. Biodynamics combines novel techniques of building up healthy soil with a renewed awareness of all the forces at work in the farm organism: among and between the soil, plants, animals, and humans, as well as the cosmos itself.
Biodynamics elevates our aspirations: rather than aiming for mere sustainability, we study and follow practices that actively heal and enliven the earth as we work it.
How we work the land and how we obtain our food must be both thoroughly practical and thoroughly grounded in a living awareness of the unseen forces that act upon the material environment around us. In this introductory workshop, veteran biodynamic farmer and educator Mac Mead will introduce the reasoning behind the methods of biodynamics.
