Motueka Steiner School Workshop Series

The Kete Ora Trust has granted funding to the Motueka Rudolf Steiner School Trust (MRSST) to offer 8 community workshops in the theory and practice of biodynamics in home gardens, marae, market gardens, farms, schools and our Steiner School Farm. The tutors are highly experienced biodynamic farmers and gardeners who will guide you through both theory and hands-on learning. Our vision is to form a regional biodynamic hub which will produce quality BD preparations under guidance and  continue to provide community and sector education in biodynamics. 

Workshops: 8 monthly workshops are on offer from November 2021 to June 2022 on the theory and practice of using biodynamics to bring life and health back to our soils, our land and the food we grow.

Workshop Three: The theme is “Permaculture  as a Design Framework for Biodynamics.”

This Workshop will be led by Dieter Proebst: Master of Science (Forestry);  Diploma in Permaculture Design with a career as  forester, nurseryman, farmer, orchardist, land-use consultant, tutor, author, long- standing biodynamic grower, farm-advisor and former Demeter Inspector.
