BIODYNAMIC FARMING AND GARDENING ASSOCIATION 2004 AGRICULTURE CONFERENCE

Durham Armory - Downtown
Durham, North Carolina

Hosted by Josephine Porter Institute for Applied Biodynamics

Supported by the Mid-Atlantic Biodynamic Food and Farming Conference

The annual conference of the Biodynamic Farming and Gardening 
Association will be held at the Durham Armory in downtown Durham, NC 
on November 12-14, 2004. The Association, the oldest organic farming 
and gardening organization in North America, will present a 
conference detailing the steps involved in converting a farming 
operation to biodynamic practices and will specifically focus on the 
importance of "quality" in agriculture. The conscientious consumer is 
willing to pay higher prices for higher quality food in today's 
market.

The Biodynamic Farming and Gardening Association will bring together 
an impressive lineup of leaders in organic and biodynamic 
agriculture, research science, and marketing. Well-known farmer, 
marketing innovator, writer and educator, Joel Salatin, will deliver 
the keynote speech, "Holy Cows and Hog Heaven." Janet Barker comes 
from Switzerland to share her expertise on "Imaging Methods: Can 
These Show Quality?" Janet is internationally noted for her work 
using the Steigbilder imaging method for determining optimum quality 
of medicinal herbs for pharmaceutical production.

Workshops on conversion to biodynamic practices, compost tea brewing, 
on-farm value-added products, seed saving, grazing management, 
integrating orchards into the farm, working consciously with natural 
rhythms of earth and solar system, and on meaningful marketing will 
provide opportunities to learn from leaders in the agriculture of the 
future.
