The event will be taking place at Hanaminno, Boorowa on September 7 and 8, from 9am – 5pm each day.
This two day workshop will introduce you to all practical aspects needed to apply biodynamics, including:
• The life of the soil
• Creating fertility in your soil
• Managing your natural resources
• Practical use of the biodynamic preparations
• Using the planting calendar
• Developing risk management - weeds, pests, diseases
• Meeting climate change challenges - drought, flood, carbon sequestration
You will learn how the biodynamic preparations contribute to the soil food web creating fertility and balance in your soil. Biodynamics is a cost effective method of producing high quality plants, food and fibre with regenerative ecological outcomes.
There will be some fantastic presenters attending the event, including John Priestley and Hamish Mackay.
John is a third generation ecological farmer and has been evolving his practice and knowledge of biodynamics for over 50 years. Now retired he and his wife Dorothy grew award winning citrus and beef cattle at Paterson in the NSW Hunter Valley. He is a wealth of practical knowledge with a keen eye for the small observations that can make a difference to farming.
Hamish has been working with biodynamics for 35 years and travels Australia presenting introductory biodynamic workshops, providing growers with clear and practical methods for adopting biodynamics as a cost effective way to produce high quality food and fibre; at the same time improving our environment.
