Introduction to Biodynamics : Webinar with Peter Bacchus
September 24, 2020 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm
We’ll be running regular webinars on all sorts of farming topics for the rest of the year as part of a programme provided to our members.
Biodynamics is our fairy godmother magically working behind the scenes transforming soils into gigantic living dance halls.
That is how I imagine the biodynamic preparations developed by Rudolph Steiner influencing the environment where they are applied.
It takes time to understand the BD concept and it is advisable to keep an open mind to the unusual methods of conception, simply begin at the beginning without expectation of the end.
Our webinar will show how to visualise the land, its inhabitants and the cosmos as one whole, not separate. A farm has no real boundaries. It is connected to every living organism around it, which in turn is connected to everything else and so on. This interconnectedness encouraged Steiner to look beyond our earth to the heavens where he saw a vast universe in rhythmic motion. With earth being so small, how can we not be influenced by the trillions of stars and planets in our night time sky?
From Biodynamic inputs to energizing the land, the webinar will provide some inspiring solutions.
We hope you can join us.

ABOUT PETER BACCHUS:
Peter Bacchus has been involved in biodynamics for over 65 years. His uncle went to Europe in 1924 to learn about the system, and then his father travelled to England to follow up on this in 1938. After the war Peter’s father returned to NZ, where he incorporated it into his own farm.
Having lived most of his life alongside Biodynamics, Peter is a wealth of information and knowledge of its efficacy, and has written a book entitled ‘Biodynamic Pasture Management: Balancing Fertility, Life & Energy’.
