With Mac Mead, Megan Durney, Harald Hoven, and Beth Corymb

Using Rudolf Steiner’s agriculture course as a foundation, we will explore “the seed” in its dynamic and complex relationship to the depths of the Earth, the expanses of the cosmos, and the agricultural individuality. Working in large and small groups, through art, movement, plant observation, and hands-on seed work (threshing and winnowing), we will delve into the mysteries of the seed-forming process.

This long weekend is truly a unique educational and social opportunity to broaden and deepen your understanding of the role of biodynamics in the development of humanity and agriculture. Join us!

Artistic Activities
Artistic activities are integral to the midwinter intensive experience. Last year, participants chose from watercolor painting, drawing, and eurythmy.

Meals
The course fee includes five meals provided by Threefold Café: lunch and dinner on Saturday and Sunday plus lunch on Monday. In addition, the nearby Hungry Hollow Co-op Natural Foods Market serves organic take-out, and there are many restaurants within driving distance.

Please note: This is not an introductory course. Participants are expected to be familiar with Rudolf Steiner’s agriculture lectures and to have some working knowledge of biodynamics.

Fee: $375
Special rate for working farm apprentices: $195
