Talk "Biodynamic growing by a local farmer"

The speaker is Gavin Winter, from Trinity Farm Organics, Biodynamic Farm at Cossall. www.trinityfarm.co.uk


The biodynamic farming and gardening movement began in 1924. It was inspired by a series of lectures given by Rudolf Steiner (1861 - 1925) the Austrian philosopher, scientist and social reformer whose spiritual research has also influenced education, medicine and the arts.
Today biodynamic husbandry is practised in more than 40 countries and in all climate zones. It is widely acknowledged as one of the most sustainable organic approaches in existence.


Awareness of the influences coming from the moon and planets provides a further opportunity for the biodynamic gardener to fine tune the gardening operation.  Since ancient times, the different constellations have been related to the four elements and these in turn to the different parts of the plant (earth-root, water-leaf, air-flower, fire-fruit). The Biodynamic Sowing and Planting Calendar, produced each year, indicates the most auspicious days for planting, cultivating or harvesting specific crops.


We will be finding out more about Biodynamic growing and if we can use it in our gardens at home!
