Are you called to grow more of your own nutritious and delicious produce? Are you feeling a pull to grow your own culinary and medicinal herbs?
If the answer is “yes”– become more self sufficient and garden in harmony with natural systems by learning to garden the Biodynamic Way.
Biodynamic gardening is a method that is often described as going “beyond organic”. It is more commonly used in Europe to organically grow plants for food, medicine, the most potent cosmetic purposes, and of course, fine wine.
Through a journey through the four seasons of the garden, you will learn the principles of growing and managing healthy soil, seeds and plants. You will learn a system of growing vibrant herbs and produce by working together with nature and the cosmos.
Acquire the skills to holistically manage your garden and learn many techniques to extend your growing season. Also included: how to create a garden plan for your unique plot of land, however large or small.
