BIODYNAMIC methods of farming and gardening represent a sustainable way forward for farmers, growers and home gardeners in New Zealand.

Biodynamic Perspectives is a selection of writings that includes techniques, thought-provoking ideas and advice from enthusiastic practitioners of biodynamic methods of farming and gardening.

This hugely comprehensive book's variety of topics will interest almost every reader, and New Zealand farmers and growers will appreciate learning directly from the experience of others.

Biodynamics is a branch of organic farming, meeting the ever-increasing demand for food that is grown according to organic methods. Rudolf Steiner formulated the principles of biodynamics and today his methods are hailed as both practical and economically viable.

This book covers soils, fertility and fertilizers, animal heath, trees, orchards, plant pests and diseases, weeds and water. A number of experts contribute to the chapters and the book has a substantial index.
