Step-by-Step Biodynamic Gardening Course

Delivered on various Ruskin Mill Trust sites through the Biodynamic Training Association.


A biodynamic gardening course in partnership with the Biodynamic Association

Step-by-Step is an introduction to Biodynamic Gardening, which has enabled many people across the UK to learn and put into practice principles of biodynamics in their own gardens, benefitting both person and planet. The new course will be held once a month on a Saturday. The course content is drawn from our rich Ruskin Mill Trust BD training that has been on offer for several years to staff, guests, volunteers and BD apprentices.

Learning aims

By the end of the course, participants will:

  • Understand the principles, intentions and basic methods of the biodynamic approach in the small garden setting
  • Have a basic understanding of interactions in the natural world, including soil, plant, animal, human being and cosmos
