On Tuesday 10th November we have a visit by and seminar by Hugh Lovel, eminent biodynamic farmer and teacher from the USA/Australia who has been pioneering the field of quantum agriculture. His wife is Shabari Bird - some of you may know of her (deceased) husband’s books – Christopher Bird’s The Secrets of the Soil/Secret Life of Plants.
Hugh and Shabari will be staying in Brandon that night, and the next day, 11th Nov, have offered the following:
On Wed, If you have gardens or properties for agriculture Hugh would offer visual soil assessment of them with whomever is managing those projects. This is profound demonstration.
So, if you are interested to have Hugh and Shabari visit your growing sites for a soil assessment on the morning of 11th Nov, be it at Ryton Gardens (the biodynamic garden, CSA etc) or nearby (eg Feldon Forest or Canalside farms), or if you have any other ideas, please do let me know! This really is a one-off opportunity not to be missed.
With best wishes
