It was a great honour to be able to guest lecturer at this Biodynamic (BD) school in South India.
The region this village and BD farm school is situated is referred to as "wastelands".
My teacher below has done a lot of the original regeneration on this desert and pioneered the vegetation and waterways back to health.
We ran some trial plots around the farm with great results.
Luxurious green growth, full fruit set, minimal need for water and great health of the plants.
We gathered various materials around the village and from the farm.
Utilised the CPP (Cow Pat Pit) made on site and BD preps.
Made some Biodynamic microbe brews.
Harvested fodder trees, burn piles and weeds and utilised these strategically for the crops.
The result was truely profound and has shown quite clearly that through these combination of practices, that even the most degraded lands can be regenerated and easily provide nourishment for us and the local markets.
I have designed a Biodynamic Agroforestry system based on the local vegetation and lifestyle needs, that provides fodder, fruits, vegetables, timber & income whilst regenerating the soil. And have been invited to spend 6 months implementing the system for the school. In the coming years I will venture over and take the task with open hands!
