Krinklewood Vineyard hosts this fantastic introductory Biodynamic Workshop in May each year. The workshop introduces participants to practical aspects of biodynamic farming and gardening.

Led by highly experienced biodynamic experts, Hamish Mackay and John Priestly, participants learn the philosophy, theory and ‘how-to’ of biodynamics.

Operating biodynamically for more than 10 years and fully certified biodynamic, Krinklewood is the ideal host venue. At this informal practical workshop, participants are able to fill and bury the cow horns, get hands on with compost making and creating the cow-pat-pit. They can see the mid-row cover crops planted as insect deterrents, with buckwheat, red clover, marigolds, lucerne, dill and coriander to name a few.

Participants will also see the flow-form in action, creating compost tea to spray over the vineyard to nurture the soil biology. Krinklewood produces most herbs and ingredients for biodynamic compost teas on-site, including acres of biodynamic garlic.

Biodynamic farming is organic, although it differs in that BD farmers use special Biodynamic preparations and they are applied a certain times of the year. The BD preparations act like a catalyst if used in the correct rhythm to improve the health of the plant or increase the life in the soil.
