BIODYNAMIC Agriculture Australia, based in Bellingen, NSW, are holding two free biodynamic growing workshops next week, on July 24 and July 25.

Anyone interested in learning to grow nutrient dense and rich-in-life-force food using this simple, affordable, sustainable method are invited to attend either, or both, workshops that will cover biodynamic gardening and biodynamic orchard management.

Biodynamic farmer Kym Green will be presenting at the orchard management workshop. Kym is a fifth generation fruit producer from South Australia, who started down the biological path in 2000 and incorporated biodynamic farming practices in 2005.

Bellingen’s local biodynamic agriculture team will be on hand to further educate on biodynamic practices, other treatments and results that can be achieved.
