Celebrating the Centennial of the Agriculture Course: Approaching the Agricultural Individuality
Public lecture by Mac Mead to open the biodynamic conference MidWinter Agriculture Intensive. For more information about the biodynamic conference, click here.
We’ll look at the context and significance of Rudolf Steiner’s Agriculture lectures given in June 1924 in Koberwitz, Silesia, and focus on a central theme, the agricultural individuality. What are the What, Why, How, and When of this guiding star of biodynamic work?
