GROWING WITH THE GUIDANCE OF THE MARIA THUN CALENDAR
Whether you are an experienced gardener or not, or whether you have used permaculture or grown organic produce before, this gathering is to explore the Maria Thun Calendar -growing by the biodynamic-method.
Together we shall learn how to use the calendar for planting, growing, harvesting, beekeeping, soil life enrichment, pest
control and rekindle in ourselves the natural rhythms of life.
This will be part of a series on Nature and You.
This learning circle will also experience an outdoor activity in gathering and learning about one of the most important wild plants for food, drink, natural medicine remedies, and soil amendment. Bring coloured pencils and a pen and paper for making notes. Chaga tea and coffee will be available.

The new year will start with two meat cutting and sausage making classes.
On January 14th and 15th we will focus on Beef.
On February 4th and 5th, we will focus on Pork.
These workshops are interesting not only for homesteaders and small farmers, but also for consumers, who wish to become more knowledgeable about the food they eat.
We are excited to host for the first time a Barn Design Workshop on February 25th.
This workshop will give you insights on how to build or modify an agricultural building that perfectly suits your needs and workflow.
The intense study of the Agricultural Lectures by Rudolf Steiner, which are the foundation of Biodynamic Farming will take place March 10th to 13th. This 4 day workshop is basically essential for every organic farmer who wants to sharpen his understanding of what really underlays the soil, plant life and house-boundary.
On April 1st (no joke) we will be hosting the first Young Entrepreneur Day here at Bear River Farms.
If you plan to start a business, or you startet one and you are struggling then this workshop is for you. So many people wish to go on their own.. but simply do not know how and where to start.
If you know of someone who is in this situation, please send him to this workshop.
The Biodynamic Preparation Making Day in Spring and Fall are an annually returning event. In this workshop on April 22nd you can learn the practical making and the proper application of the Biodynamic spray and compost Preparations. Those preparations are used worldwide by thousands of farmers, gardeners and grape growers to produce premium crops.
How to keep you livestock in, and predators out.. this is what you can learn at the Electric Fence Workshop on May 13th at Bear River Farms. After many years of failure, we figured out a way to install electric fencing that is efficient, low in maintenance and easy to build.
After being asked by many homesteaders, many, many times for a Cheese workshop, we are proud to announce that on June 10th we will host a Cheese Making Class. Sports are limited. Register soon. Here are the details:
On October 7th, we will host the Fall Edition of the Biodynamic Preparation Making Day.
