The Biodynamic National Conference Is Less Than a Month Away
Don’t miss this community event!
The buzz is getting louder about all the opportunities in store at our national conference.
Keynote speakers who are established leaders in the movement to revolutionize food and agriculture: Nicanor Perlas, Michael Schmidt, Fred Kirschenmann and Sister Miriam MacGillis.
A diverse selection of workshop options, from the politics of raw milk, to the art of biodynamic wine growing, to the future of CSA, to role of the greenhouse on a biodynamic farm.
The RAW MILK WORKSHOP on September 30 will include Michael Schmidt, Sally Fallon Morell, David Gumpert and Petra Zinniker.
A taste of what biodynamics has to offer at the Biodynamic Food and Wine Tasting, a fundraiser featuring a menu created by top local chefs with biodynamic ingredients, wines from more than a dozen Biodynamic winemakers, biodynamic teas and other beverages, dancing to world folk music, the inaugural diploma ceremony for the North American Biodynamic Apprenticeship Program, and a special screening of the inspiring new documentary on the bee crisis, Queen of the Sun, by the director of The Real Dirt on Farmer John.
A free pre-conference Youth Gathering, a place for apprentices, beginning farmers, gardeners, educators, activists, and other young people (roughly 18-35) to meet and converse about the future of agriculture and the convergence of young people around biodynamics. With free camping available on a first come, first served basis, this is an affordable opportunity for young folks to participate in the inauguration of this developing group within the biodynamic movement.
Open space networking opportunities on issues of interest in the biodynamic community, such as community grain sowing, biodynamic research initiatives, heritage wheat, and farmland access and preservation.
