A two-day workshop with practical and theory components,
sponsored by the Australian Government’s National Landcare Program and presented by Biodynamic Agriculture Australia Ltd.
THEME: Building capacity and resilience through biodynamic farming techniques, which enable increased humus and soil carbon, adaptation to a changing climate and sustainable, biodiverse, healthy soils.
TOPICS & AIMS: Achieving natural resource management and improving sustainable agricultural production via biodynamics applied to:
• managing soil acidification
• reducing the risk of soil and nutrient loss from wind erosion
• increasing soil organic carbon
• improving management of on-farm native vegetation
• reducing the risk of soil and nutrient loss from hillslope (water) erosion
TRAINING IN: The workshop will involve training in all aspects of biodynamic practice, with property inspections to reinforce learning.
• biodynamic methodology;
• integration techniques into management plans on a whole-of-farm basis
• increasing biodiversity and adaptation to climate change
• pathways to conversion to a wholly organic system. Alternatively, these techniques can be integrated into an existing conventional system
• demonstrations on how integrating biodynamic techniques can result in financial benefits, both a higher value product and a reduction in input costs.
PRESENTERS: Roger Carthew, Kym Green and Mark Pye will provide a variety of knowledge of biodynamics and its application in all facets or agriculture.
Thursday 22 & Friday 23 April 2021 9am–4pm at Ngeringa, 107 Williams Road, Mount Barker Summit, SA 5251
