We will be making biodynamic preparations. Join us on Wednesday 28th September outside of the Roundhouse from 10am onwards. Bring a packed lunch and be suitably prepared for English weather. Children welcome.

Each autumn we make a number of biodynamic preparations and then commit them to the winter soil. Influenced by the sleeping earth, the instreaming power of stars and planets and the changing conditions within and above the soil, they gradually ferment and become sweet-smelling compost-like substances. When retrieved in spring time they are ready to use on this and many other farms and gardens across the country to improve the soil, increase its vitality and help the plants growing in it to thrive and provide high quality, flavoursome and nourishing food. The main task on this preparation making day is to fill a large number of cow horns with some of the wonderful fresh cow pats that our SCA animals have been producing. Do come and join us on Wednesday 25th September outside the Round house from 10.00 onwards. Bring a packed lunch and be suitably prepared for English weather. Children are also welcome.
