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.

The Alchemy of Bee-ing

When we step into the world of honeybees, we are entering a multidimensional landscape of being. Bees are agents of transformation and a phenomenon that Rudolf Steiner perceived as an “enigmatic-world-being.” Our journey into the world of bees will naturally lead to an inquiry into our own consciousness. It is a gate into the wisdom of the bees and the landscape of the human soul. This workshop will explore the alchemical qualities of our relationship with honeybees.

Sacred Self within the Universe

​Patricia Ann Davis is a Native American elder who has translated Dineh blessedway ceremonial principles into an​​ Indigenous Ceremonial Change Process​, a healing process ​designed to correct out-of-balance conditions within people, society, or the environment. During this session, she will lead ​participants through th​e​ Indigenous Ceremonial Change Process, allowing us to experience co-creative power-within ​and ​co-creative power-with others, which eliminates the need for power-over that is jeopardizing holistic ecology practices for our collective survival.

Reconnecting Formerly Incarcerated People to Nature and Society

In 2016, Rachel Schneider of Hawthorne Valley Farm launched a collaborative Community Garden Internship Project to connect formerly incarcerated people with community gardening opportunities in New York City. In this program, HVF is working with Insight Garden Program, well-known community facilitators in the New York Area—including Karen Washington—and the Bard Prison Initiative to deliver IGP's curriculum to people in reentry, along with opportunities for hands-on community gardening.

Re-membering the Future

Often it is crisis that throws us into turmoil and ultimately sends us in a new direction. At a certain point most of us want to feel less thrown about and more firmly in the driver’s seat. In the sea of choices that lay before most of us, at any given moment, really, can we feel clearer about the course of life that is right for us? Is it possible to develop a more objective view of the road? To know which way to turn? You bet! It can help to think of life itself as a map. Through the practice of biography work, it is possible to know where we’re going, individually and as a whole.

Q&A: Biodynamic Composting and Preparation Making

This interactive session will be an opportunity for those individuals seeking to develop new imaginative ways for practicing biodynamics to ask questions to a panel of experienced biodynamic practitioners. These panelists, each in their own way, have brought new thinking to biodynamics and are working to address the core challenge of transforming our myopic perceptions in agriculture.

Liberating Farmland for Farmers and Communities

A key challenge facing the current and the next generation of biodynamic and regenerative farmers is long-term, affordable access to land. This workshop will give an overview of the principles and challenges of farmland protection, stewardship, and succession will and share success stories from the work of land trusts and other innovative organizations working to address these challenges. Should farmland be viewed as a commons that no one can own individually? Can investors play a positive role in securing farmland for the next generation?

Weather is Not Climate

To understand the current climate debate, it is useful to be able to see the difference between the forces that form weather and the forces that form climate. Although these different domains have overlap, the crucial issues regarding climate are often blurred by the large number of daily weather forecasts available to people today. This workshop will look at how a climate phenomenon such as El Niño can be understood independent of the daily weather forecast.
