Regenerative Agriculture

Biodynamic Farming

Host: Judi Unger
Masterclass: Monday 11 April 2022
Time: 12noon – 1.30pm

With a surge in regenerative agriculture over the past few decades resulting from the concerns of farmers, gardeners and consumers to grow/eat plants and food which is grown in green, clean, healthy soils, which are nutrient dense and taste good. Biodynamics has increased in popularity with rejection of products grown with high use of chemicals and synthetic fertilizers becoming evident.

During my presentation on Biodynamic Farming, I will provide a definition and a framework on how to get started.

I will touch on the Biodynamic preparations and field sprays, and how they are made and stored.

I will address other strategies which enhance organic/biodynamic farming/gardening which include composting, green manuring, crop rotations, grazing rotations, peppering, liquid manures, radionics, dowsing, animal husbandry, flow forms, stirring machines, the Brian Keats Astro Calendar and Australian adaptions to biodynamics.

Leadership & Soft Skills

Making effective and efficient decisions to benefit organisations & communities

Host: Maree Crosbie
Masterclass: Thursday 14 April 2022
Time: 12-1.30pm

Community Development must involve the local community, as an organisation we need to make good decisions about how we will work with the community to find out their needs and wants. It is important to identify both paid and volunteer community leaders as they will be the ones that encourage others to join in. As the project starts to take on a life of its own and is run for and by the local community it is time for the organisation to step away and leave them to manage the project. I will give some great real examples.


Stargazing Make Us Feel Good!

Host: Donna Burton
Masterclass: Friday 8 April 2022
Time: 12noon – 1.00pm

Dark skies and stargazing sessions are quickly gaining popularity. The clear night skies are an excellent form of escapism, acting as a powerful mindful meditation tool. Away from city and suburban lights – stars are ready to be explored by anyone wishing to jump aboard the astro train. Stargazing is an exciting activity that can help you reduce stress and boost your creative juices. The world of dark skies never gets boring at any point. You can attribute this to the fact that there is always a new natural wonder to explore. It allows you to view things from a different perspective every time you step out to the stargazing lounge. Physiologists point out that the best ideas come forth when we’re at peace. Watching the clear night sky can quiet your thoughts, letting your creative spirit flow through you. Stargazing can become a family hobby. Bring out your binoculars and throw blankets to stare at the clear night sky. Have some fun picking out the different stars and planets, guided by some cool stargazing apps.
