An Introduction to Gardening the Biodynamic Way

Sunday 15th March 2pm - 5pm
With Dr. Sue Peat and Philip Martyn

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 which plants respond to. The workshop will cover the background to the biodynamic planting calendar, composting and the biodynamic preparations. Participants will be invited to exchange seasonal gardening 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!

Philip Martyn and Dr Sue Peat are long term students of Rudolf Steiner. Philip is a retired lawyer and has previously served as CoGeneral Secretary of the Anthroposophical Society in Great Britain. Sue is a medical consultant at Kings College Hospital, with a specialist interest in pain relief and medical education.
