About biodynamics

Biodynamics is a whole farm approach that seeks to manage the soils, crops, and animals on a farm in such a way that the enterprises on a farm strengthen and support each other.

Farming and growing

Biodynamics helps build the humus level of the soil on your farm using a whole farm approach as well as the biodynamic preparations.

Gardening

Gardening responds very well to a biodynamic approach. You can use the sowing and planting calendar throughout the growing season.

Where to learn

The Biodynamic Association can help you find a training to learn about biodynamic farming and gardening. There are courses to suit your needs and pocket.

Where to buy

Certified biodynamic produce is recognised by the distinctive Demeter logo. Find out where you can buy some.
