The eight biological-dynamic preparations belong to the central elements of Biodynamic Agriculture as constitutional remedies for the agricultural organism. They can be produced locally on the farm on its natural basis and in the process with it. However, the worldwide spread of Biodynamics implicates adjustments and individual procedures, which lead to a rich variety of making biodynamic preparations.
Fifteen views of preparation sites and people will be presented in this study-based book, with both a wealth of experience and aspects for discussing and advancing biodynamic preparation practice. Last but not least, the personal answers and examples help in the understanding of biodynamic preparations and their social anchoring.
