A quest for quality in food and farming
The quality of food depends on how it has been grown and processed. During this course we will show how biodynamic techniques can enhance the living processes of soil and plant, increase vitality and improve the overall quality of the crops. We learn about the biodynamic preparations, gain an understanding for the well-known Biodynamic Sowing and Planting Calendar and learn the value of biodynamic seeds. It will also include practical outdoor demonstrations. Open to all.
Please bring outdoor footwear and clothing, as well as indoor shoes.
Friday evening 7.30pm talk The Quality of Biodynamic Food. Includes food tasting. £7.50 for public, free to course participants
