An Introduction to Gardening the Biodynamic Way

Sunday 23 June 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 using the biodynamic preparations. It’s summer and so we will focus on sharing tips for caring for flowers and food plants – from flowers and windowsill herbs to fruit trees. For the last hour, we’ll 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 summer treat!

Sue and Douglas are enthusiastic gardeners with lots of practical experience of biodynamic gardening.

All welcome, no need to book.
