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

Biodynamic Winter Intensive 2017

Check back in October for details on this coming year’s program (February 19-24, 2017).

This workshop is for farmers, gardeners and others seeking a renewed relation to the land

WheatStars_BrightOur Winter Intensive is a foundational, highly-interactive one-week program bringing together biodynamic farming, spiritual science, and personal growth through awareness-based practice. Astronomy, Plant Growth, Soil Health, Soil Fertility, and Cropping Practices are among the themes that will be covered.

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.

Registration opening in October of 2016.
