Biodynamic agriculture arose in response to industrial agriculture and synthetic fertilizers in the early 1920s, offering holistic land stewardship practices to express the individuality and potential of a growing site. Today Biodynamics can be found in many parts of Europe, India, and Australia. It is rooted in creating self-sufficiency and generating on-site fertility through the application of home-made compost and the use of nine preparations described by Rudolph Steiner to restore soil ecology, promote plant life and replenish etheric and astral life forces. The concentrated preparations come from mineral, plant and animal kingdoms, each aged uniquely and added to soils to revive beneficial microbial life and restore the evolving dynamic cycles of living fertile soils. These are applied in homeopathic amounts to compost, soils and plants after dilution and stirring--procedures called dynamizations.
