Farm-Based Educators Advanced Retreat

 

Farm-based education has finally come of age. It is now a recognized national movement. Meanwhile, our society seems to be ever more plagued with signs of disconnection, violence, turbulence and crisis.

This September, FBEIBA is organizing an intensive retreat for experienced farm-based educators inspired by anthroposophy. We will come together to further penetrate questions of how farm-based learning can best be used productively to create hope for a better society.

Gardening with the Rhythms of Nature

With weather patterns becoming more erratic and extreme, we can harness important balancing help by becoming knowledgeable about daily, monthly and annual rhythms. When is it best to:

  • mow the lawn to preserve moisture
  • work the soil to release moisture
  • prune or fell trees
  • sow for best germination

We will also take a closer look at the Stella Natura Plantings Calendar
