The Hope of a Threefold Commonwealth

Our times are calling for a radical new vision of society that can bring business, culture and government into right relationship. One hundred years ago, Rudolf Steiner, the founder of biodynamics, brought forth a such a radical, holistic vision, sometimes called the Threefold Commonwealth. In this workshop we will give a broad overview of the Threefold Commonwealth and its guiding principles. We will also give examples of many current social initiatives that are inspired by this vision or working in harmony with its guiding principles.

Acequia Culture and Regional Food Systems

Acequias are gravity-fed, communally managed irrigation systems that are related to the agri-cultures of Central Asia, the Middle East, and the Iberian Peninsula. Acequia culture in New Mexico is an amalgamation of Spanish, Arabic, Mexican, and Puebloan foods, traditions, and techniques and is an important part of the food security and economic base of the region, especially in rural areas. This presentation will illustrate the essence of acequia culture in terms of the practices, food traditions, and crops that offer lessons of resiliency in times of climate change.

La Lógica Oculta Detrás de las Preparaciones Biodinámicas de Compost

Los detalles de cómo elaborar las preparaciones biodinámicas del compost pueden asustar a los neófitos en el camino de la biodinámica - inusuales ingredientes y técnicas pueden parecer como vudú o simples locuras. Aun así, existe una profunda lógica en el porqué de la manzanilla dentro de los intestinos de la vaca, la milenrama dentro de la vejiga del venado y la corteza del roble en el cráneo.

Brother Crow Sister Corn

In this workshop children will experience an original marionette play inspired by creation stories of the Native Americans. The story begins with an imagination of what happens when Crow brings the seed of corn to humankind. The people tend their gardens and the Sister Corn sustains them. It is an image of respect and awareness of the necessity and interdependence between Nature and the Human Being.  Workshop based on the book Brother Crow, Sister Corn: Traditional American Indian Gardening by Carol Buchanan.

Hugh Williams of Threshold Farm will describe how to create a whole-farm Keyline plan, including off-contour farming, drought-proofing your farm, engineering of Keyline dams and reservoirs, Keyline scale of permanence, and how Threshold Farm is implementing these to manage the flow of water across their land.

The Hidden Logic of the Compost Preparations

The details of how the biodynamic compost preparations are made can scare off newcomers to biodynamics - uncommon ingredients and techniques can sound like voodoo or just crazy. And yet, there is a deep logic in why the chamomile is put into the intestines of a cow, yarrow in a deer bladder, oak bark in a skull. Discovering this logic is not only awe-inspiring, but can give farmers and gardeners practicing biodynamics tools for explaining these preparations to their customers and their communities.
