An Introduction to Gardening the Biodynamic Way
Sunday 23rd June 2019
2 - 5pm
All welcome, no need to book. £10.00 / £5.00
Biodynamics is an organic method of cultivation, arising out of Rudolf Steiner’s Spiritual research. It works with the rhythms of the movements of the sun, moon, planets and stars to which the plants respond. The workshop will cover the background to the biodynamic
planting calendar, composting and the biodynamic preparations. Participants will be invited to exchange gardening seasonal tips, ideas and experiences. For the last hour we will stir the horn manure preparation (known as 500), so bring an empty screw top bottle if you want to take some home. A 500ml bottle is enough for an average garden. The workshop is suitable for those new to biodynamics and for anyone who would like to give their garden, window boxes or house plants a spring treat!
