Online Conference 2022 – Breathing Life Through The Preparations
Want to build better soil?
Want to grow more nutrient dense food?
Here at Biodynamics New Zealand, that’s what we’re all about!
Come join us online for a wonderful weekend exploring the fundamentals of biodynamic preparations here in New Zealand, as we breathe life into the practicality and ease of creating, storing and using preps within the community.
With core values of enhancing life rather than fighting disease, and utilizing the biodynamic preparations in full trust with deep intentions, the time is critical to come together and work in harmony with our universe, to heal ourselves and our communities.
Whether you are new on your journey of biodynamics, or a seasoned practitioner, everyone is welcome to learn, discover, investigate and reinvigorate with us.
Saturday 11th June – Saturday Night Social 6-8pm
An evening to connect socially online as a community, come together for the opportunity to meet new people, find gardeners and growers in your region, and perhaps exchange contact details with the people you’d like to visit in the future. We are a small community here in New Zealand, let’s strengthen our ties together.
