This week is the 2nd Annual Heirloom Expo in Santa Rosa, California. There’s been a full schedule of BioDynamic lectures and I’ll be coming home ready to implement nutrient and energetic rich soil preparations and maybe one day tread into the inspiring biodynamic bee world where you don’t keep bees, you live with them.
Ryan will be making the deliveries this week- thank you!!
