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.

A note from the editorial team

Some of The Echo’s editorial team: journalists Paul Bibby and Aslan Shand, editor Hans Lovejoy, photographer Jeff Dawson and Mandy Nolan

The Echo has never underestimated the intelligence and passion of its readers. In a world of corporate banality and predictability, The Echo has worked hard for more than 30 years to help keep Byron and the north coast unique with quality local journalism and creative ideas. We think this area needs more voices, reasoned analysis and ideas than just those provided by News Corp, lifestyle mags, Facebook groups and corporate newsletters.

The Echo is one hundred per cent locally owned and one hundred per cent independent. As you have probably gathered from what is happening in the media industry, it is not cheap to produce a weekly newspaper and a daily online news service of any quality.

We have always relied entirely on advertising to fund our operations, but often loyal readers who value our local, independent journalism have asked how they could help ensure our survival.

Any support you can provide to The Echo will make an enormous difference. You can make a one-off contribution or a monthly one. With your help, we can continue to support a better informed local community and a healthier democracy for another 30 years.”
