Biodynamic techniques are based on the recognition that plants are intimately connected with and depend on soil that is alive and vital. Through nurturing and caring for the soil, you will be able to grow quality produce that has vitality and more flavor.

Sharing its principles, methods, and techniques with organic farming, biodynamic agriculture also acknowledged that plant growth is affected by planetary influences, such as the waxing and waning of the Moon.

Whether you are an experienced gardener or new, this book offers accessible tips on:
  • Favorable times for planting, harvesting, and growing
  • Ways to combat pests and diseases
  • Building soil furtility — crop change and rotation
  • How the planets and stars affect plant growth
This is a practical guide for anyone who wants to garden or farm in true harmony with the forces of nature.
