  • 8 min watch

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.
