Last month we hosted a weekend event known as the Secret Festival, exploring the latest food and wine trends. Secrets of all kind were revealed, ranging from secret family recipe ingredients to secret gardening and composting methods.
It was during a workshop that our vegetable garden expert, Neil, shared some of his personal biodynamic composting secrets. Spier is currently in the process of converting its vineyards to organic and has a vegetable garden that is run not only according to organic principles and practices, but also according to biodynamic ones.
Those that participated in his workshop were so inspired, we asked him to share his thoughts.
