Biodynamics goes beyond organic and is the next step for agriculture. It is a spiritual scientific approach to building healthy soil and growing vital plants. Rudolf Steiner, a scientist and seer first offered the ideas and techniques in 1924 when plant vitality was already suffering due to agricultural practices that treat soil and plants as chemical mechanisms.
Biodynamics recognizes the earth and all upon it as having a relationship to the cosmos. Living natural systems arise out of the interplay between cosmic and earthly forces. Dr. Steiner created potentized preparations that have a relation to specific cosmic influences. Compost treated with these preparations helps soil receive these forces so it can bear more colorful, vigorous and delicious plants.
