Conference 2014

The 2014 New Zealand Biodynamic Conference.

Speakers shared a cornucopia of thought-provoking perspectives at this year’s annual biodynamic conference. The conference was held in Palmerston North, from Friday, May 23 until Sunday, May 25.

The keynote speakers at this year’s conference were Steffen and Rachel Schneider, who had come over from New York State in the USA. They kicked off the conference together, with an overview of their Hawthorne Valley Farm, which made for an incredibly inspiring window into a holistic biodynamic community, encompassing a mixed farming system (dairy, beef cattle, pigs, chickens, vegetables, grains), artisan food (bakery, creamery, kraut cellar) and various learning centres (apprenticeships, internships, workshops, farm tours, farm camps).
