Green Renaissance

For the last 18 years, Christopher and Eva Dry have lived and worked on their biodynamic farm. It hasn’t always been easy, but their love for their land, biodynamic farming, and this special way of living keeps them here. As Christopher says – “The light makes no sense without the dark. It needs the dark to have strength.”

Farming is exceedingly difficult
On every front

People working towards more idealistic goals
