biodynamic agriculture: in tune with cosmic energies
Just watched some report on BBC 2 today about biodynamic farming.

A farmer was shown burying cow horns filled with a special mixture, which would have to stay for 6 months in the soil, and being transformed by the whole of earthly and cosmic energies into something apparently highly effective.

"Cosmic energies" in this context meant to be understood as certain influences emanating from beyond our own earth, that's to say, the planets of our solar system.

Needless to say, the methods used by biodynamic agriculture are, to some, highly debatable and make those using them look somewhat cranky.

Nonetheless, they have been used for many decades, and with very good results... There is even biodynamic wine on the market (which, to me, is heresy as Rudolf Steiner advised against consuming alcohol).

Does biodynamic agriculture add something to what's simply known as "organic" farming ?

Maybe it does.

I'll add this link as it is from Howstuffworks, don't know however how accurate it is.

Re: biodynamic agriculture: in tune with cosmic energies
BD gardening or agriculture work well together, I believe, with permaculture which is about effectiveness (as far as I can see).

Taking into account phases and other aspects of the moon OTOH is not really new in itself, even if biodynamic agriculture insists upon these factors.

Example: moon low while planing = will promote growth of lower portions of plants (roots); moon high while planting = will promote upper portions of plants (fruits, leaves).
