This course is being offered by the Agricultural Section at the Goethenum as a gift as part of the 100th Anniversary Celebrations of Biodynamics 1924-2024
Through deepening into anthroposophy, biodynamic agriculture can be experienced in a truly fruitful way. Anthroposophy develops an image of the human being, whereby the human being – completely connected with the soil, plants, animals and the climate – is able to penetrate nature in such a way that a personal relationship with the spiritual world of beings, which appears in it, can develop.
Out of this spiritual relationship, you can work practically, for example with the biodynamic preparations, you can shape the farm into a living organism and align your commitment with the big picture of the earth as a living being.
Where does the human ability to cultivate nature come from? How far are we as human beings actually allowed to cultivate nature agriculturally? These are some of the questions we will look at in this course.

They are mainly addressed to people who already have previous knowledge and are connected to the biodynamic movement. A basic interest in the anthroposophical background, as well as the will to explore the subject in depth, should be present.
