The theme for the 2018 Biodynamic Conference is Water and Light. And what a wonderful place to appreciate both – Central Otago.
The 2018 Biodynamic Conference will take place from Friday, 22nd to Sunday, 24th June 2018. The first day will be spent at The Orchard Garden in Clyde and moving to Rippon Vineyard for the Saturday and Sunday workshops.
Keynote addresses will be given by Thea Maria Carlson, the newly appointed Executive Director of the American Biodynamic Association (BDA), who will share highlights of the BDA’s recent work in promoting the biodynamic movement in North America.
The second keynote speaker is Ian Trousdell, director of The Foundation for Water. Ian will talk on the rhythmical dynamic flow and energy of water.
There will be workshops on Maori Star Lore and the Dark Skies, which is appropriate as this is around the time of year that the festival of Matariki is celebrated. Other talks will cover tree pruning and working with the biodynamic tree paste, along with further talks on water and light.
