Biodynamics – Principles and Practice for Gardeners and Growers

(1 day workshop, Damson farm, Bath – Friday 3rd May 2024)

This workshop will introduce you to the history and key principles of biodynamics, as well as practical ways in which this nourishing and healthful approach to growing can be applied directly to your own land.

We will begin by looking at the principles that underpin biodynamics – its values and philosophies – as well as the way these principles are applied in a practical way. In the afternoon there will be the opportunity to work directly with the biodynamic preparations as well as taste the results of working biodynamically in some of Limeburn Hill’s biodynamic wines.
