Step-by-Step Biodynamic Gardening Course

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