What is biodynamics?!
We are asked and still the explanation can be part garden hack, part astrologist. The Biodynamic Association, which has been around since the 1920’s gives this explanation.
Biodynamics is a spiritual-ethical-ecological approach to agriculture, gardens, food production and nutrition.
Biodynamic initiatives seek to embody triple bottom line approaches. Ecological, social and economic sustainability.
Biodynamic farmers strive to create a diversified, balanced farm ecosystem that generates health and fertility from within the farm itself. Preparations made from fermented manure, minerals and herbs are used to help restore and harmonize the vital life forces of the farm and to enhance the nutrition, quality and flavor of the food being raised. Biodynamic practitioners also recognize and strive to work in cooperation with the subtle influences of the wider cosmos on soil, plant and animal health.
