An Introduction to Gardening the Biodynamic Way

Sunday 29 October 2pm - 5pm

with Dr Sue Peat and Douglas Davidson

Biodynamics is an organic method of cultivation, arising out of Rudolf Steiner’s spiritual research. It works with the rhythms of the movements of the Sun, Moon, planets and stars to which the plants respond. The workshop will cover the background to the biodynamic planting calendar and the biodynamic preparations, including those used in composting. We will be paying special attention to the work of the worms. Participants will be invited to exchange seasonal tips, ideas and experiences. For the last hour we will stir the horn manure preparation (known as 500), so bring an empty screw top bottle if you would like to take some home. A 500ml bottle is enough for an average garden. The workshop is suitable for those new to biodynamics and for anyone who would like to give their garden, window boxes or house plants a winter treat!

Dr. Sue Peat is an enthusiastic biodynamic gardener and long term student of Rudolf Steiner’s work. She is a medical consultant at a London Teaching Hospital, with a specialist interest in pain relief.

Douglas Davidson is an enthusiastic BD allotment holder.
