The course is suitable for farmers and gardeners who want to deepen and specialize in organic growing methods and get to know the basis for biodynamic growing and conversion to the Demter standard mark.


About the course: 
The intensive course is designed to support farmers and farms that are located
At the beginning of their path in biodynamic agriculture.
Instead of setting up the perfect school, living soil comes out
