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; firstname.lastname@example.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 »
