Lessons learned in biodynamic farming
John and Katy Ehrlich share lessons they've learned in biodynamic farming, how working with community increased production and how they’re passing their work ethic on through mentorship.
- Biodynamic farming re-thinks every aspect of the food system, including how land is owned and how food is produced, distributed and prepared.
- Having just enough livestock to help provide fertility for the soil is one aspect of striving for sustainability.
- Helping aspiring farmers acquire the skill and confidence to start their own farms through an apprenticeship program can help strengthen the future of farming.
- Working with the community to understand the amount of food they need can help you minimize cost and waste.
