Dear Friends of Biodynamic Farming and Gardening
How do we connect with the newly sharpened awareness and interest about the links between food, health and the environment? Now more than ever our Earth needs an influx of new energy, motivation, excitement and willingness to pick up and carry a healing process. Active biodynamic gardeners and farmers can make an significant contribution to that rejuvenation.
Rudolf Steiner offered two clear guidelines in using his approach to agriculture. Firstly: put it into practice including conducting testing that demonstrates real understanding. Secondly: broaden application as far and wide as we can over the entire Earth.
If this challenge is to be accepted by a new generation of farmers and gardeners then, education, monitoring, mentoring and methodology all become critical to the way forward. It suggests responsibility and obligation from anyone who has a background in biodynamics to get involved in some way or another.
The Biodynamic Winter Warmer and Hui on the 16th August, is designed to host conversation that shapes a path forward together about how we re-imagine, refresh and reshape learning programmes to equip these emerging farmers and gardeners for the work ahead. Our intention is that Taruna College will again be the centre for the learning programme – revitalised in a style, design and format that is endorsed by you as friends and members. The day’s discussion will include topics of general education, apprenticeships, internships and national preparation making.
We need each other for the work ahead, and this is a wonderful opportunity to connect. We hope that you will be part of creating the changes you want in the world.
Please join us by enrolling now and as well, share the opportunity this day gives us all with your own networks.
