Biodynamics class wrap up

biodynamicsThe Biodynamics class was great! Biodynamics is a spiritual-ethical-ecological approach to agriculture, food production and nutrition, and a potent force for change worldwide. Poki talked about the ecological approach and showed us his barrel compost he makes and how to do it and the practical side of applying Biodynamic products and principles to his compost and soil, while Dominique talked more about the spiritual side of what Biodynamics represents.

We got a planting calendar page for the month and many handouts on the basics of Biodynamics. Then we went out to the fields to learn more. Biodynamics is so much more than just growing food.
