The Biodynamic movement started in 1924 by Rudolf Steiner who wrote 8 lectures known as the Agriculture Course. In many ways biodynamics is a process that a certified organic farm goes through to adapt various practices such as the creation and application of special preparations, composting, dynamic crop rotation and companion planting. Also using tree pastes, plant extracts, herbal teas and ferments to naturally feed and heal the soil, plants and trees.
You hear so much lately about sustainable agriculture. In order for agriculture to be sustainable, the soil must attentively be cared for. Not only does the soil need to be respected and conserved, it must be enlivened, regenerated and developed. This is an ongoing endeavour of a biodynamic farm. At the heart of biodynamic agriculture is the farmers’ quality of observation, the ability to assess a situation and to act. This is what makes a farm successful and keeps it sustainable.
