Explores the links between two streams of thought that rely on natural forces.
Regarding the strange ways of biodynamic agriculture. The most logical explanation I've ever heard about the why of BD techniques called it "homeopathy of the soil."

In essence, it is vibrational healing; sending the vibrational fingerprint from these organic substances out into the soil, itself a living organism.
BD farming is a fairly labour-intensive organic farming approach which assures long-term soil fertility and health of cattle, and provides good yields with top quality of food produce. Naturally, it cannot do without knowledge and skilful use of other and basic organic farming practices, such as crop rotation, multi-cropping, composting, mulching, green manuring with the aid of legumes, the use of companion plants and trap plants, the use of rock dust.etc. In order to become a successful BD farmer it may not be necessary to comprehend everything that Steiner has said on farming, even though it is very little in quantity. It will be enough to apply the "technique", with skill and commitment, and, if possible, with understanding and love.
