Biodynamic Agriculture aims to be a human service towards healing the earth. It is a type of organic agriculture that strives to create a diverse and balanced 'farm organism' that provides for itself. The soil is enlivened and replenished through the use of special homeopatic medicines used in compost making and directly on the earth or plants. Food taken from such enlivened soil helps our health, thinking, and learning.
Join a fun and renewing series of workshops geared towards gardeners and farmers of all levels. Through lectures, movement, sharing, imagination, and hands-on learning, many of Tal's former participants have found replenishment in the series. Workshops will be held in or near the Twin Cities metro area.

Biodynamic Composting and Stirring of Horn Manure
Composting is at the heart of biodynamics. When using biodynamic compost healing forces infuse and restore the soil. We will build a compost pile together and learn how to inoculate it with the compost preparations.
We will round out the series by stirring and applying the horn manure preparation, a portion of which you may take home to apply on your garden. This preparation stimulates root growth and enlivens the soil.
