After lots of grief and live chats with techies who are probably throwing darts at my domain name, I’m finally up and running on WordPress. Thanks a million to Tanya of Blogelina who patiently went back and forth with me as I freaked out through the process. Just when I thought I’d lost everything, because I did visually lose sight of my entire blog when I thought I had enough programming skills (which I have zero of)  to fix a minor problem, she really came through for me.

I’m still finding my way through so please bear with me. The old posts came in imperfectly with weird fonts, misaligned paragraphs, and all kinds of little things going their own way. I still haven’t decided if I’m going to be OC about that and fix each one. Right now I think my time is better spent on new entries. I’ll deal with that when I have 24 extra hours to work with. In the meantime, welcome to my new home!

I hope it’s not too late to get you to jump on this. Here in Manila the course starts in a little over an hour, but I just got this in the mail yesterday and jumped on it. I believe this is the way of the future and I hope to catch you there.

Farming in Harmony with the Cosmos:
Introduction to Bio-dynamic Agriculture

FEE: P600 including handouts and light snack
Institute for Steiner’s Ideas in Practice (ISIP) Philippines presents a lecture by Gregory Kitma, one of the country’s leading expert practitioners on Bio-dynamic Farming.
Many of us have heard of and are quite familiar with ORGANIC farming. Organic food production requires the use of safe, sustainable farming methods, producing healthy crops and livestock without damage to the environment. No artificial or chemical fertilizers and pesticides are used, and animals are reared without use of antibiotics and drugs. The health of the soil is maintained and the welfare of livestock considered.
Bio-dynamic farmers take the organic concept even further. The approach is holistic, recognizing that there are invisible life forces embedded in plants and animals that work in partnership. There is a recognition that the whole earth is a living organism in harmony with the vast cosmos, and each farm is unique. The result is food within nature’s organization bursting with health and vitality.
The evening introductory lecture will provide participants with the basic philosophy, principles, and methods of Bio-dynamic Agriculture.
Fee
P600, inclusive of handouts and light snacks
