In 2012, as never before, the earth as a living being is calling out
to us for recognition, for healing, for sacred and sustainable
ways of tending her soil, plants, animals, and landscapes...
You Won't Want to Miss This
Every two years, people from across the continent gather to learn, educate, find inspiration, and connect with each other. The energy at Biodynamic Association conferences is incredible. This year we're gathering from November 14-18 in Madison, WI to explore the theme of Sacred Agriculture and how we can build a sacred relationship with the earth through farming, gardening, and transforming our communities. We'd love to see you there!
This will be a rare opportunity to meet and learn from an amazing array of renowned biodynamic practitioners. Learn about the biodynamic preparations with Hugh Courtney of the Josephine Porter Institute, biodynamic and sustainable beekeeping with Gunther Hauk of Spikenard Honeybee Sanctuary, biodynamic orchardry with Hugh Williams of Threshold Farm, biodynamic winegrowing with Paul Dolan of Paul Dolan Vineyards, or the relationship of farms and communities with Farmer John Peterson of Angelic Organics - among many, many others!
Scholarship and volunteer applications are due soon! Applying by August 15 allows you to register before the Early Bird discount expires on September 15. Scholarship funds and volunteer discounts are limited, so please apply early. You may apply for both.
