Biodynamic Farming Links

Today I spent working in the garden and being present to several welcome visitors from near and far. Although life can be filled with ebbs and flows of unpredictable possibilities, I allocate some time each day to personal spiritual growth. At this moment, I am quite intrigued by Biodynamic Farming and Rudolf Steiner's work. I am very pleased to see a society of people who make his material available on the Internet. The free archive I've accessed several times is impressive and worth perusal and a donation. For those who don't know anything about Rudolf Steiner or biodynamic farming, I've pasted a blurb here with a connecting link.

"Rudolf Steiner created and launched ‘biodynamic’ farming — a specific form of agriculture which has come to be regarded as ‘premium organic.’ However, the agriculture Steiner speaks of in this book is much more than organic, and involves working with the cosmos, earth, and spiritual entities. To facilitate this, Steiner prescribes specific ‘preparations’ for the soil, as well as other distinct methods born from his profound understanding of the material as well as spiritual worlds. He presents a comprehensive picture of the complex dynamic relationships at work in nature and gives basic indications of the practical measures which are necessary for bringing them into full play."
