In thirteen full-day workshops from September to June, our one year part time practical training in Biodynamics covers the basic principles and timely activities of biodynamic agriculture through the seasons. In the classroom, Mac Mead, and expert guest faculty introduce and explain Rudolf Steiner’s spiritual science, the foundation of biodynamics, in the context of Steiner’s “Agriculture Course” of 1924. Gardening techniques are demonstrated and practiced along with making and using the biodynamic preparations.
