“The definitive practical manual for biodynamic farmers and gardeners, with a section on viticulture.”

David Lorimer, Scientific Medical Network Review


For anyone already practicing, or turning to, biodynamic gardening and farming methods, numerous detailed questions arise, such as:

  • How do I choose my seeds?
  • What fertilizers should I use?
  • Which natural products are most effective?

This manual, fully illustrated with explanatory diagrams and photographs, provides the answers. The book covers:

  • all aspects of making and using biodynamic preparations and composts
  • managing the health of plants
  • weed control
  • parasite control
  • issues of mixed cultivation
  • animal care
  • specialized crops and planting such as fruit trees and vines

Although the technical aspects of biodynamic growing are exhaustively covered, the author also considers the human qualities necessary for this kind of agriculture to succeed.

A Biodynamic Manual is an invaluable guide for all biodynamic growers to have to hand daily.
