Biodynamic Compost Preparations

Biodynamic Compost Preparations

Wali Via explores six biodynamic compost preparations, which include yarrow flowers, chamomile, stinging nettle, oak bark, dandelion blossoms and valerian flowers, often wrapped in animal organs. Biodynamic agriculture is sometimes referred to as “hogwash” due to its basis in spirituality and lack of scientific support for its efficacy beyond simple organic practices. Nevertheless, Via argues that biodynamic practices “harness […] the life forces in a way that allows them to act as catalysts to enhance the health and balance of our farm,” with compost preparations “making the soil more sensitive to cosmic rhythms.”
