Grow Your Own is becoming increasingly popular; there is growing recognition, too, that being outdoors, and getting in touch with Nature is hugely beneficial and brings many positive health and well-being rewards.
Now you can experience both, plus the power and vitality of biodynamic gardening, and discover its benefits for yourself.

Comprising of 6 x 1-day sessions from Feb to July 2024 this course is a great way to learn about all the biodynamic principles and practices and enable you to put them into action in your own garden or allotment.

The total cost for the course (6 sessions including a simple lunch) is £180 which is exceptional value, working out at just £30 per day session including lunch. Places are strictly limited so we advise booking early!

A longitudinal study by Coventry University researched with the course participants has shown that: 
“In all years and at all locations, the Step-by-Step Biodynamic Gardening course was very well received by the delegates and the course clearly provided a very positive learning experience for those taking part… the delegates reported improved understanding of both the theory and practice of BD gardening, referring the positive experiences of learning about the physical, cosmic and spiritual dimensions of the approach and increased confidence in how to put the theory into practice. The delegates also had very positive views on the course, referring to the content, the structure, the locations, the course tutors, the delivery, and the group dynamics of the course.”

What course participants have said:
” I really enjoyed the course, its content, the approach and the location in such a lovely garden. I liked the spirit of sharing – whether that was biodynamic practice, experience, access to the space or its produce, ie the lovely homegrown lunches”
”  I would also like to say how much I enjoyed the inspirational step by step course. Although I have had an allotment for several years and have always aimed to grow organically, this course has opened my eyes to so much more. My only regret is that I had not discovered the biodynamic way a lot earlier”
One of my greatest joys now is coming back from a Step by Step day and putting into practice some of the many strategies that I am learning.  Embedding the concepts in the day-to-day running of my plot with an immediacy that is already having an effect on me, on the crops that I am growing, and hopefully in the long term, on the soil and diversity of plants and wildlife in the area. I am forming a noticeably different relationship with the plot and with the growing process, which I find truly wonderful”
