Quantum Agriculture Courses with Hugh Lovel in Norway and Denmark, February 2020

  • 2 February – free webinar (Zoom) – at 18:00 (GMT+1)
  • 11-13 February – Kullerup, Nyborg, Denmark (intermediate course)
  • 15-16 February – SJH, Aurland, Norway (intro course for farmers and students)
  • 18-21 February – Fokhol, Stange, Norway (European advanced course)

Learn how agriculture works in harmony with nature and how to improve yields, eliminate weeds and pests and improve crop responses to weather while harvesting both carbon dioxide and nitrogen from the atmosphere and building these into the humus in our soils. 

Hugh Lovel and Shabari Bird.

Hugh Lovel and his wife Shabari Bird consult farmers in Europe, USA, Australia and South Africa. The currently reside on their homestead in Blairsville, Georgia, USA, where they offer courses and webinars. He is the author of many articles on fertility management and crop nutrition as well as topics concerning radionics and biodynamics.

Hugh built upon his education in mathematics, physics, chemistry, biology and psychology to formulate his concepts and developments during more than 30 years of farming, first in the mountains of northern Georgia, USA, and in Australia. He is the author of the classic book A Biodynamic Farm and is a frequent contributor to Acres U.S.A. and other magazines, as well as the new book Quantum Agriculture — Biodynamics and Beyond.

Testimonials:

“Beware you faint hearted and conventional thinkers. Hugh Lovel brings biodynamics to a place of practical application, which challenges the very essence of status quo paradigms. Now I have a clear, practical guide to hand anyone who asks “What is Biodynamics?”. Thank you Hugh.”

Words by Hugh Lovel about the courses – December 2019

It is a natural progression to go from using the Biochemical Sequence to understand the priorities of interpreting soil tests and prescribing amendments to feed to the humus flywheel’s custodian, the soil food web, which provides ground zero for how plants grow.

We want to take this beyond paint-by-numbers biodynamics, aiming more toward Rembrant and van Gogh. This will require telling the story from the Goethean world-view rather than the more customary and familiar Kantian paradigm. Here’s the point. What we are dealing with here is LIFE, and the Kantian Epistemology doesn’t include LIFE, while the Goethean Epistemology does. Our farms and environments are dying and are deficient in LIFE. What is missing is LIFE, but it’s not exactly something you can just order from the LIFE merchants and pay a monthly bill for. Here we have to learn a new vocabulary to see our circumstance from a new perspective.

The second day follows with the processes–what goes on–in the soil and in the atmosphere. Soil and atmospheric processes are quite different from each other, though they are ever so complementary. They are so rarely explored they are almost occult knowledge, though nothing in nature is hidden. Nature is an open book if only we knew how to read it. Silica works by day, lime works at night. Carbon is drawn into the plant from the atmosphere by day, nitrogen is drawn into the soil biology through the soil by night. Water and clay facilitate and moderate the interaction of these processes, and the more dynamically they interact the better the system works. Alas, there are cycles within cycles. There are corresponding cycles such as daily cycles, monthly cycles and annual cycles. Keep in mind that the context provides the energy of organization for LIFE at boundaries. As we recycle biomass, manures, soils, minerals and other raw materials as compost, how do we enliven it? This is material that has lost its organization or fallen out of balance and needs to be re-organized–stuff like mouldy hay, ditch spoils, manures, wood wastes and ruined silage. Typically these materials are so out of whack they need to be re-organized into a premium food for the soil food web before they are returned to the field. Understanding how to do this skillfully leads to day three.

With day three, we take off into quantum physics where what you look for is what you find. This is where the presence of the observer and his or her measuring instruments is a determining factor in the field of investigation. The observer and the phenomenon are inseparably linked. Concepts precede perceptions, and answers inspire questions, cognitive dissonance notwithstanding. Dowsing taps into the intuition. Radionics makes use of quantum non-locality and entanglement and here we have the tools for playing with nature and the crops we grow in a well-intended way–artistry in agriculture.
