    Biodynamics and Permaculture: Exploring Tools to Heal the Earth, A Workshop in New York
    October 29, 2011; 9 am to 5 pm; $95
    The Pfeiffer Center, Chestnut Ridge, NY; info@pfeiffercenter.org; www.pfeiffercenter.org/workshops

    Biodynamics and permaculture are two approaches to agriculture and land care that work to engage the forces of nature to foster a healing relationship between humanity and the earth. Permaculture is used by millions of people in over 150 countries to design sustainable habitats that integrate humans into their ecosystems. Biodynamics is widely practiced in North America, Europe, and Australia and promotes an understanding of the “dynamic” life forces at work in nature to create agricultural systems that bring about balance and healing. Where do these powerful systems overlap in the world? What are their similarities, their differences?

    This one-day workshop will explore principles, practices, goals and methods of biodynamics and permaculture. We’ll clearly define and demystify the language of each system, building a foundational, holistic understanding, while discovering and seeking deeper truths. Read more »

    SUMMARY: The Pfeiffer Center internship is intended for individuals who want to broaden and deepen their understanding of organic sustainable agriculture and the biodynamic approach. This full-time, one-year program combines academic work with hands-on field experience. A strong emphasis is placed on studying biodynamic principles and techniques, including agricultural handwork, plant care, pest management, soil amendment and bed preparation, crop rotation, succession and companion planting, greenhouse work, beekeeping, orchard management, and more. For those with the interest and ability, there is also the opportunity to work with our team of draft horses, both in animal care and fieldwork.

    Interns attend all courses and workshops of the Pfeiffer Center, including the One-Year Part-Time Training in Biodynamics, and a weekly seminar on Rudolf Steiner’s Agriculture course anchors the academic work. Interns also work with school and camp groups attending our children’s program, The Outdoor Lesson, which helps contribute to the future health of the earth by fostering an attitude of reverence and joy toward nature and all its beings.

    The internship’s focus on agricultural handwork represents an opportunity not available in farm apprenticeship programs, and helps develop skills that are invaluable when applied to larger-scale agriculture. The academic opportunities that are integral to the internship afford our interns an unusually balanced life of work and study. The focus on biodynamics leads to a heightened understanding of issues of quality which are generally not given sufficient attention in today’s agriculture. Read more »
