  1. Monty’s book on biodynamic winemaking was literally the first comprehensible piece of literature I found on the subject and it’s amazing. Great video.

    On-Line Biodynamic Course Goes Live
    The UK Biodynamic Association (BDA) is proud to be launching the first ever on-line, fully accredited distance learning course in Biodynamic Agriculture – Principles and Practices. The program has been developed and will be run by the BDA’s Biodynamic Agricultural College (BDAC) located in Forest Row, East Sussex, England.
    Arjen Huese, one of BDAC’s Course Leaders, wrote the course together with other staff in response to an increasing demand for an on-line course building on the experience and success of the courses BDAC has been running for over the last ten years. He comments, “It became evident to us all at BDAC that an on-line course in Biodynamics is a great way to reach more people and spread the insights in the Biodynamic methods to farmers, gardeners and all people interested in sustainable food production.”
    Going live in January 2012 with the ‘Introduction to Biodynamic Agriculture’ module, in total ten modules will be rolled out over the following two years. The modules feature a wide range of topics including Composting, Astronomy, Etheric Formative Forces and Community Supported Agriculture. Each module runs for three months and includes eight lessons each with a video and detailed lecture on the subject. There is a task associated with each lesson and these are marked by the staff member at BDAC presenting the module. In addition, students have access via the website to a Virtual Learning Environment with forum, chat-room and wiki-pages.
    The course is aimed at complete beginners right through to professional gardeners and farmers. The learning pathway is extremely flexible as each course module is individually accredited. To attain the full Diploma students complete all ten modules. Some tasks are practical and students will require access to a garden, allotment or farm to complete them in order to achieve the qualification.
    Patrick Holden, Patron of the BDA, comments, “In offering courses to all those who have a thirst to acquire new food production skills, the Biodynamic Agricultural College has emerged as a shining beacon of hope for the future.”
