Check Out the Biodynamic Association’s Monthly Webinars Starting in February
Rudolph Steiner, Biodynamics, and the Environmental Movement
Date: February 28, 2018
Are you aware of the profound but often hidden influence of Rudolf Steiner and biodynamics on the wider environmental movement? Are you wondering how biodynamic and anthroposophical principles might make a larger contribution to the future of environmentalism?
Please join the Biodynamic Association’s Monthly Webinars series for a lively conversation on these topics with Dan McKanan, the Emerson Senior Lecturer at Harvard Divinity School and Robert Karp, Strategic Adviser to the Biodynamic Association. Dan has just published a groundbreaking book that traces the profound impact of Rudolf Steiner’s work and teaching on the environmental movement and explores new ways to heighten this impact going into the future. Robert will interview Dan and then open the floor for questions from webinar participants. Dan’s new book “Eco-Alchemy: Anthroposophy and the History and Future of Environmentalism” can be purchased here.
This webinar will be recorded, and all registered participants will have access to the video recording on the Biodynamic Association website for 6 months after the webinar. For more information and to register, click here.
Seed Saving for Crops That Suit You Best
Date: March 7, 2018
Cost: $10 members, $20 non-members
Saving seeds was once an essential part of the culture of farming, but most modern vegetable growers now rely on commercial seed. The cost of this convenience is seed, which has no relationship with the specific conditions of our farms and gardens. Through seed saving, we can reinvigorate the relationship between seeds and land, creating plants that are uniquely adapted to thrive. This webinar will explore practical ways to integrate seed saving into your farm so that you can individualize your crops for flavor, nutrition, color, yield, disease resistance, and more. You cannot buy seeds that will be so good for your land! For more information and to register, click here.
