The Future of Agriculture - a Biodynamic approach
10 - 13 November 2011
With a dynamic mix of keynote speakers, workshops on topical biodynamic issues and "world cafe" discussion space, this conference will be of great interest to farmers and growers (young and old) working within the organic/ biodynamic and wider sustainable movement.
It will also appeal to producers and consumers who would like to find out more about biodynamics or deepen an existing connection. All welcome!
Taking place on the beautiful Emerson Campus, home of the Biodynamic Agricultural College, there will also be a chance see biodynamic farming in practice at the inspiring, nearby Demeter certified Tablehurst Farm during the event.
The film 'Queen of the Sun' about the global bee crisis and biodynamics will also be shown.
Further talks by:
A Pre-Conference gathering will be held the day before for those who are young at heart to look at the question of access to land for farming and growing. This will provide an opportunity for students and apprentices from both biodynamic and organic trainings to meet and share.
Wine tasting: Time will be set aside one evening to sample biodynamic wines from Sedlescombe vineyard
Fee: £150 for the three days including food. Participants will have to find their own accommodation (some of which will be available to rent on site)
