What does "Biodynamic" mean?
The Biodynamic movement originated in 1924 in a series of lectures by the Austrian scientist and philosopher, Dr. Rudolf Steiner. Steiner is the founder of the Anthroposophical movement. Anthroposophy, which means the wisdom of man, refers to what Steiner called "spiritual science." Anthroposophy articulates a broad spiritual view of the human being set within the context of man's past, present and future evolution. It encompasses a profound awareness and utmost respect for both the visible and invisible forces that continue to shape human life. Biodynamics is a science of life-forces, a recognition of the basic principles at work in nature, and an approach to agriculture which takes these principles into account to bring about balance and healing.
Biodynamics is an ongoing path of knowledge rather than an assemblage of methods and techniques, or a mere substitution of synthetic materials for non-synthetic (organic) materials.
The biodynamic farmer tends to be a lifelong student of Anthroposophy: The study of man and his spiritual relationship with the universe.
The use of cosmic rhythms: The movement and presence of the sun, moon, planets and stars contributes to the life, growth and form of the plant. The movement or rhythm of each cosmic force can be incorporated in the timing of ground preparation, sowing, cultivation and harvest of a crop.
The use of the ancient practice, farming with planetary rhythms: Lunar and astrological cycles play a key role in timing biodynamic practices, such as the making of biodynamic preparations and planting and cultivation schedules. Recognition of celestial influences on plant growth are part of the biodynamic consciousness which recognizes that subtle energy forces affect biological systems. The most prominently known biodynamic agricultural calendar in the United States is Stella Natura – it contains daily and monthly astrological details, and lists suggested times for planting root, leaf, flowering, and fruiting crops.
