18 Sep - 22 Sep - 00:00

With Autumn comes harvest time in the garden. The Yippies will spend the mornings learning from Thomas Lüthi about the foundations of Biodynamic agriculture. The course will focus on the ABC of biodynamic agriculture and will broaden the perception of what ‘communities’ can be by giving an insight into how ecosystems live and grow together. Thomas will introduce the Yippies into the Swedish landscape and seasons, specifically in the area of Järna.

There will be the possibility of building a biodynamic compost together as well.
