A 700-acre Demeter certified 650A Biodynamic farm in central Columbia County, NY

Biodynamic Winter Intensive 2015

The Role of the Animal and the Human Being in the Co-Evolution of Our Earth

February 15 – 20, 2015

A week of workshops for farmers, gardeners and others seeking a renewed relation to the land

Since 1972, Hawthorne Valley Farm has been a working farm committed to the understanding and practice of Biodynamic agriculture. As society attempts to cope with the turbulence caused by an industrial approach to agriculture, the biodynamic concept of the farm as an ecologically sustainable whole is one that can help bring a timely solution to contemporary challenges. Biodynamic methods recognize the importance of both human and biological community life and strive to bring renewing forces to both. Through this series of offerings, we seek to further the understanding and practice of Biodynamic farming and gardening.
