[apologies for cross-postings]
Seattle Biodynamic Study Group resumes meetings.
Come for thought-provoking discussions and activities for all, whether new to BD or an advanced practitioner or a permaculture practitioner.
Last year we worked with Richard Thornton Smith's Cosmos, Earth, and Nutrition, visited Jubilee Farm, and enjoyed the Engler's garden.
This year we will begin work with Extraordinary Plant Qualities for Biodynamics, by Bockemühl & Järvinen (2006, Floris Books). This book presents the biodynamic preparation plants and "shows how their nature and habits relate to the positive characteristics they can bring to biodynamics."
This book will also be a means to explore the phenomenological, "Goethean science" affiliated with biodynamics, which can foster our connection with nature and which complements both modern science and ancient traditional practices.
This will be of general interest, not only for biodynamic gardeners and farmers.
The Seattle BD study group will meet next on October 1st at 7:00 pm at Scott & Pam Engler's home, 7022 21st Avenue NE.
We meet every first and third Monday evenings.
