Speaker Bio
Anthony has been farming for 17 years, after being introduced to biodynamics early on and working with many experienced farmers and mentors. He has experience in market gardening, small grains, herbs, berries, and tree fruit, as well as caring for a variety of animals, including draft horses, chickens, pigs, sheep, goats, and working on a raw milk cow dairy. He has worked in education and training the past 10 years, mentoring apprentices side by side, offering workshops and shorter and year-long courses, as well as consulting, advising, training, and teaching in a school gardening program. He enjoys bringing people into relationship with the wonder, beauty, and nourishment a biodynamic farm can provide, and seeing them grow and develop through this relationship individually and in community. Cosmic and earthly nutrition is an area of focused research and work. The forces and substances of the natural world, seen and unseen, are my greatest teachers and constant sources of strength and inspiration.
