Getting ready for the new season

Ryton Organic Gardens
Wednesday, 11 April 2018 -
9:30am to 1:00pm
This half day workshop is part of a series of five delivered by the Biodynamic Association. It will prepare you for the growing season ahead, and covers the philosophical and practical aspects of  the biodynamic approach to sowing and growing successful plants and crops. It includes managing the biodynamic garden and the role of water in bringing balance and biodiversity into your garden.
What we will cover:
  • Planning your biodynamic garden;
  • The importance of water and harmony;
  • Biodynamic garden management.
This workshop will be led by biodynamic grower and enthusiast Matthew Hayes. Matthew is currently a tutor and development manager for the new rooftop garden at Argent College in the Jewellery Quarter, Birmingham, and also runs his own commercial market garden in Hungary. He completed his biodynamic apprenticeship at Tablehurst Farm in 1986, and has worked as a gardener and educator since.
Like many gardeners who get to know and use biodynamic methods, Matthew finds himself ever more convinced of the importance of the biodynamic approach, and looks forward to sharing his knowledge and experience at these workshops.
