Mulloon Creek Natural Farms
Whether you are visiting Mulloon Creek to attend a small course in biodynamics or soil health, or coming to hear an international speaker present, the welcoming atmosphere, delicious catering and stunning natural environment will make you feel at home right away.
Advanced Biodynamics Practices
There is a growing number of biodynamic practitioners who are developing their knowledge, skills and practices in various fields of agriculture, horticulture and viticulture.
Advancing the development and evolution of biodynamics will be achieved through the sharing of these experiences and an expansion of understanding the profound role agriculture has in our culture and the future of life of the planet and its inhabitants.
This event will be participant oriented focussing on the questions and observations of those attending.
There is a prerequisite for the advanced workshop - participants must have used the biodynamic preparations for at least one year as they need to come and discuss their observations, it is not just theory.
Hamish Mackay and John Priestley will facilitate the event, hosted by the Mulloon Institute at Bungendore.
We encourage, and look forward to, your participation.
