Biodynamics is a combination of ‘biological’ and ‘dynamic’ agricultural and horticultural practices.
‘Biological’ practices include a series of organic farming techniques that improve soil health. ‘Dynamic‘ practices are intended to influence biological as well as metaphysical aspects of the farm and garden, increasing vital life force, operating the farm and garden in harmony with natural rhythms (such as planting seeds during certain lunar phases) and energies. – Gold Leaf Biodynamics, 2008
One of our horticultural contributors, Carol the cosmic hobbit, has launched a very interesting and generous blog on all things biodynamic, including an introduction to the principles of biodynamic practice, current dates of auspicious rhythms and advice for vital gardening. This is a wonderful opportunity to ask all of those questions you may have about the nature of biodynamics. Bookmark it!
