Horns of Plenty: BD 500 Gathering

Sean Mooney at Full Moon Farm and friends are hosting a Biodynamic Prep making gathering on Saturday November 19 from 10am-1pm.  Joey Brinkley will join us to demonstrate how to make BD 500 preparation, which we apply as a soil spray to encourage beneficial microorganisms, stimulate root growth, humus formation and fertility.  If you can attend please call 707.494.7869~~please bring a dish to pass and your helping hands!  The address is 2000 Smith Lane in Kelseyville. 

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.
