The scientific and cosmic worlds of biodynamics are set to hit Byron with a free Biodynamic Open Day this weekend 10 November at The Farm, followed by a two-day Introduction to Biodynamics workshop 29–30 November, presented by world-renowned educator Hamish Mackay. 

Biodynamics is based on Rudolf Steiner’s agriculture lectures from 1924, and brings together the art and science of agriculture, challenging and stimulating our engagement with life on Earth as part of the cosmos. There’s more to it than burying a cowhorn full of manure on the summer solstice and digging it up on the winter solstice.

If you would you like to learn about how biodynamic gardening is different from organic gardening, permaculture methods, and syntrophic farming methods then this workshop is for you.
