BIODYNAMIC INTENSIVE SEMINAR: Deepen Your Understanding of Biodynamic Agriculture

Over 3+ days working together, we will explore the human being’s unique role in creating a healing agriculture in a context that is increasingly dominated by mechanical and digital technology. Biodynamics focuses on fostering healthy relationships in all aspects of our lives: with the natural world, within social life, and with ourselves. By developing our capacities to perceive and serve the life of the earth and humanity, we may help create and use “moral’ technologies with a potential to heal.

Through presentations, conversation, exercises, artistic activities, practical work, and farm visits, we will strive to more fully know, experience, and participate co-creatively in agriculture. New approaches from biodynamic agriculture will be offered to help us bring forward the gifts of our plant, animal, soil, and human communities towards creating a nourishing and healthy community of life.

This course is designed for anyone participating in or interested in deepening their relationship to and understanding of agriculture: farmers, gardeners, and homesteaders, teachers, food system, and non-profit workers, activists, parents, caregivers, community members, and eaters. No prior experience is needed, just an openness and willingness to engage together.

Presenters include: Anthony Mecca, Spencer Fenniman, Jess Brobst, Todd Newlin, Steffen Schneider, Jean-David Derremeuax, Lia Babitch, Marc Blachere, and Sam Mirkin.
