Description: The Demeter Biodynamic Farm Standard was originally created following Rudolf Steiner's Agricultural lectures and has been continuously maintained for more than ninety years through a democratically administered coalition of Demeter organizations throughout the world. It is a comprehensive agronomic standard that views the farm as a living organism: self-contained, self-regulating, in tune with the cycles of nature. Here in the USA the Demeter Farm and Processing Standard provides the marketplace definition of Biodynamic for commercial farms and products. The intention of this workshop is to provide a comprehensive and practical overview of the Farm Standard.
