Biodynamic Agriculture 06-07.05.22
"New agriculture must be based on values.
It should have ecological stability. It needs to have an element of social justice, and it needs to be ingrained in our culture. "

In a focused and enriching course, we have packed the tools and principles of biodynamic agriculture to give you the infrastructure for quality-oriented agriculture.
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.
The practical part:
# Preparation and application of a concentrated compost preparation.
Application of Preparation 500.
#Preparation and application of wood paste.
# Planning an agricultural season according to an astronomical calendar.
#Development of biodynamic approach since 1924
#Shaping forces in biological processes.
# The economy as a living organism.
#Working with biodynamic preparations.
# Astronomical sowing and planting board.

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
To the places where biodynamic agriculture is developing
Thus helping you see how the conversion process can begin
For biodynamic agriculture.
The upcoming course will be hosted in Mitzar in the Golan Heights, by Danny Lavie. The moshav jointly operates an organic plot of 200 dunams with
A variety of crops.
