Practical techniques for farmers and gardeners who want to discover the benefits of biodynamics for themselves. Add new skills and awareness to your gardening experience!

The evolution of biodynamics into a worldwide movement is gaining momentum, and it has earned respect for the quality and vitality of produce. This class is a fascinating journey into holistic and sustainable gardening for the 21st century.

You will learn:
- Knowledge of an introduction to biodynamics.
- How to make high quality compost with the biodynamic approach.
