The Crossfields Institute Level 3 Diploma in Biodynamic Farming and Gardening provides two-year training which combines the development of practical skills alongside the development of deeper understanding which are needed for a new generation of farmers and gardeners.
This training is designed along the lines of a classical apprenticeship, combining practical and theoretical learning with the aim of building confidence and resilience in producing high quality food in a way that works cooperatively with nature, just what is needed to make the world a better place.
Alongside the development of practical skills, students take seminars during the winter months when the practical work is less busy. These courses bring students from all over the country together to consider biodynamic principles, aspects of a farm and garden and how these can work together harmoniously with nature. They include classroom and outdoor teaching, artistic activities and plenty of discussions.
Students have more than 30 teachers each with a professional background that offers students insight into many different areas of expertise. These complement the practical experience gained in day-to-day work, offering the opportunity to work meaningfully in creating practical solutions for the future.
With more than 20 years experience in the provision of agricultural education, we are pleased to offer this unique professional training, the only certified level 3 diploma in the agro-ecological sector in the UK.
This program is a collaboration between Crossfields Institute and the Biodynamic Agriculture Association. It will involve hands-on work based learning at a host farm located in the United Kingdom.
