Patricia Frazier, Transitioning to Biodynamics on Conventional or Organic Farms
In this interactive workshop, Patricia Frazier leads a discussion about the practical application of biodynamics on farms of multiple scales, including management practices with the goal of transitioning toward biodynamic certification. Her organization, Demeter USA, is the certifying agency for biodynamic practices in the United States. The standards and requirements for certification will be reviewed with a practical approach toward transitioning to their application. The workshop is applicable for conventional farms seeking to transition to organic management and ultimately biodynamic as well as organic farms seeking to incorporate biodynamic principles into their management. The workshop is a continuation of an earlier workshop in the conference and is appropriate for participants with some familiarity of on-farm biodynamic management. Bring your questions and issues specific to your farms for a lively discussion.
