Introduction to Biodynamic Gardening with Abigail Porter [CANCELED]

April 9, 2022 @ 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm

*This event is canceled due to low registration
What is biodynamics? How is it different from organic agriculture? How can it improve the health and vitality of your soil, animals, and food? We will cover the Principles of Biodynamics: Farm or garden land seen as a whole organism, creating a closed-loop system for fertility and nutrition, creating habitat for beneficial insects and birds, working with the rhythms of the day, month and year, use of the biodynamic preparations (transformed and potentized plant, animal and mineral material) to enhance the vitality of the soil and plants.

Abby grew up on a biodynamic dairy farm in Northeast PA. Following a career in the arts (jewelry design and production) she came back to her roots in 2001 with her move to Berkeley Springs WV and the need to rehabilitate the poorest garden soil she had ever seen. Abby served on the Board of Directors of the Josephine Porter Institute for Applied Biodynamics for five years and wrote for their publication Applied Biodynamics for ten years. She currently consults and gives workshops for backyard gardeners beginning biodynamics.

Beginning in 2022, Fox Haven will pay $2 from every ticket sale to the Piscataway Land Trust as a LandBack tax for the land Fox Haven inhabits. Land taxes to indigenous nations function similarly to paying rent or a home mortgage. Payments such as a mortgage provide access to living space, whereas LandBack taxes recognize our access to stolen Indigenous land.

The Piscataway Land Trust is a long-term Indigenous-led effort led by the 501(c)(3) Cedarville Band of Piscataway Indians Inc. to restore and rematriate ancestral land and sovereignty in the Chesapeake region to Piscataway and other Chesapeake Indigenous people.

About LandBack Tax
From 2022 onward, Fox Haven will donate $2 from each event ticket to the Kikeokan Foundation to pay LandBack tax, acknowledging our access to stolen Indigenous land. The Kikeokan Foundation is an Indigenous-led initiative working to restore ancestral land and sovereignty to the Piscataway and other Indigenous communities of the Chesapeake.
