PUBLISHER: DK DESCRIPTION:In 2018 - 2019, local lifestyle media outlets were reporting an increased interest in natural, biodynamic wines with a few wine bars such as RVLT, Cure, Drunken Farmer, Bar Cicheti offering these options to customers. Biodynamic farming principles were first created by Rudolf Steiner and focus on working in rhythm with the earth and cosmos. Some interesting facts about biodynamic farming principles are:1. The certification for biodynamic produce is called an orange Demeter and apart from necessitating that the produce is organically grown, the farmer must also use eight mineral and plant-based preparations to activate soil life and plant growth on the land (all water used in the farm must be activated by movement). 2. Cows are crucial to biodynamic farming practices. Cow Horn Manure (BD 500) and Horn Silica (BD 501) are used to primarily prepare the fields and enhance soil microbiology. 3. Whilst traditional farming has long used lunar almanacs, the biodynamic calendar also includes constellations and planetary alignments.MORE ABOUT THE BOOK: Biodynamic Gardening by DK is the perfect resource for exploring and putting into practice this unique method of organic gardening.This clear, practical guide gives you tried-and-true advice on biodynamic gardening and tips on this ultra-green, organic gardening method.
