Beyond Organics: An Introduction to Biodynamics

Join Biodynamic Association Executive Director Robert Karp and biodynamic farmer Steffen Schneider of Hawthorne Valley Farm in New York for an introduction to biodynamic farming methods.

As in organic agriculture, biodynamic farmers do not use synthetic fertilizers, pesticides, or herbicides. But biodynamics is not only about what farmers cannot do. Biodynamics is an ecological, ethical, and spiritual approach to agriculture which creates fertility and health from within the farm and produces food with extraordinary flavor, nutrition, and quality.
