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.
