The inventory of knowledge that is generally warehoused under the classification of biodynamic is rich and timeless, and yet very few farmers have even a nodding acquaintance with the subject. This book performs a rescue operation. A practical, how-to guide to making all of the biodynamic preparations, this book will provide what you need to put these proven techniques to work in your fields. Perhaps the best of the many biodynamic titles currently available. Further explains how to achieve success through CSA-style market garden marketing. A Biodynamic Farm brings the sometimes confusing subject of biodynamics within the grasp of all farmers.
Hugh Lovel is one of the world’s experts on quantum agriculture and biodynamics.
