Practical Instructions for Farmers and Gardeners
This book is one that many of us have been hoping for many years that someone would write. It answers just about every question I’ve ever had regarding biodynamic gardening and farming, and goes on to provide practical instruction for much, much more. It is a gold mine of guidance and information.
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
The author exhaustively covers technical aspects of biodynamic growing, as well as the human qualities needed for this kind of holistic agriculture to succeed.
