The Pfeiffer Center’s Year Long Training in Biodynamics covers the basic principles of biodynamic agriculture according to the seasons, in thirteen workshops.
In the classroom, we will discuss the lectures of Rudolf Steiner’s Agriculture Course and the values which define biodynamic practices.
In the field, lecture principles will be applied in practical farm & gardening exercises.
Field study includes mixing Biodynamic preparations, understanding the Biodynamic calendar, sowing cover crops, building compost piles, pruning, and much more.
