Biodynamic agriculture is a method of organic farming originally developed by Rudolf Steiner that employs what proponents describe as “a holistic understanding of agricultural processes”. One of the first sustainable agriculture movements, it treats soil fertility, plant growth, and livestock care as ecologically interrelated tasks.

In Dennis Klocek’s first book, he describes seasonal patterns, processes in the Earth’s body, plant growth forces, and cosmic influences that contribute to agricultural practices inspired by Biodynamic and alchemical understandings. Illustrated by the author with sensitive illustrations and woodcuts, this book will be your constant companion throughout the year in the garden and on the farm.
