Biodynamic workshop series at GeerCrest Farm

This spring, GeerCrest Farm is hosting a series of workshops on biodynamic agriculture. The classes are taught by Beth Weiting, Master Biodynamic Gardener, on selected Saturdays from 2-5pm. Suggested donation is $25 per workshop or $80 for the series.

Last autumn, Mix Magazine published an article about Oregon vineyards that use biodynamic farming methods. They discuss the use of cow’s horns, stag’s bladders, and reliance on moon phases. Interesting stuff.

Workshop Schedule:

Workshop 1 - March 24
Introduction to Biodynamic Agriculture
Why are these methods important?

Workshop 2 - April 21
Building a Biodynamic Compost Pile
Information about preparations used in the pile and their effects on the compost, soil and food.

Workshop 3 - May 19
Use of the two main Biodynamic Sprays: Preparations 500 and 501

Workshop 4 - June 2
Using the Stella Natura Planting Calendar
