Description:     

With these lectures and discussions, Rudolf Steiner created and launched ‘biodynamic’ farming — a specific form of agriculture which has come to be regarded as ‘premium organic.’ However, the agriculture Steiner speaks of in this book is much more than organic, and involves working with the cosmos, earth, and spiritual entities. To facilitate this, Steiner prescribes specific ‘preparations’ for the soil, as well as other distinct methods born from his profound understanding of the material as well as spiritual worlds. He presents a comprehensive picture of the complex dynamic relationships at work in nature and gives basic indications of the practical measures which are necessary for bringing them into full play.

These lectures are reproduced here in the ‘classic’ translation made by Rudolf Steiner's English interpreter George Adams. This edition also features a Preface by Steiner's colleague the medical doctor Ehrenfried Pfeiffer, as well as eight color plates.

This edition was translated from shorthand reports unrevised by the lecturer and presented here with the kind permission of the Rudolf Steiner Nachlassverwaltung, Dornach, Switzerland. From GA# 327.
