Biodynamicswas initiated in 1924 when Dr. Rudolf Steiner recommended we view our farms as living organisms in connection with all of the elements of the earth and cosmos. He suggested that the farm’s fertility should come from the farm itself, not from artificial fertilizers, because the latter would tend to make our food less nutritious and our thinking and feeling more materialistic. Along with practical methods for integrating soil, plants, and animals into a self-sustaining farm, biodynamic gardeners work with spiritual elements by using homeopathic preparations to create compost, high quality produce, and a pleasant atmosphere.
