Biodynamic Conference 2018
BioGro NZ were proud to sponsor the Biodynamic Conference this year, held in two locations in the Otago region. Up to 100 attendees came to delve into the Water & Light theme of the conference, with some truly extraordinary views.
Biodynamic is an alternative form of agriculture, which treats soil fertility, plant growth, and livestock care as ecologically interrelated task, emphasising spiritual and mystical perspectives. The first day was located at the beautiful Orchard Garden in Clyde, I can't say we prepared ourselves too well for the temperature drop though! The second and third day took us to Wanaka, overlooking the lake from the stunning Rippon Vineyards.
The whole programme included talks by leading biodynamic experts, including Thea Carlson from the United States, and Ian Trousdell who dialled in through video conference from China. From pruning methods, to star alignments, and really getting into the heart of the biodynamic techniques, we came away with so many more questions that we can't wait to find out.
Thank you for such a great conference NZ Biodynamic Association, we look forward to see what next year brings.
