For the Earth to blossom ( regenerate), in Biodynamics the use of cow manure in making compost, and the 500 preparation ( horn manure)  is particularly important, not just as a purely material fertilizer, but because something spiritual is retained in the manure. No other animal imparts such, only the cow is possessed of a four stomach digestive system that leaves an impress of its spiritual self in the manure. Within it are nitrogen and oxygen -bearing spiritual forces. If you look back a few posts (4) you can read a bit more about my preface to Biodynamic Agriculture, and its founder, Rudolf Steiner. Within the realm of agriculture, Steiner observed the deteriorating quality of food crops, and the increasing difficulty of nature to regenerate itself with vitality and health. This was in the late 19 th century. When Steiner gave his topical series of lectures, The Spiritual Foundations of Agriculture, in 1924, he remarked that people would find that the use of using inorganic fertilizers would have to stop all together ( in order to grow food). This little pile of manure you see the hyacinth rising from (it’s not really growing in there) is part of a collection pile. Soon it will layered in with plant wastes and straw until it is about 3’x 6’. The six BD compost preparations will be inserted , the pile covered with straw and without turning, left to mature for about a month. Compost made in summer and spread in autumn is the best ( forces and timing) fertilizing for the soil, but additional compost in Spring used on  certain crops, areas of the garden or in homemade potting soil mixes is also beneficial.

The writing’s on the wall for Spring, and it’s all about plants. Did you that I grow nearly all the plants used in Tender Flower products, on my land, following Biodynamic practices? Biodynamic agriculture came about through a series of lectures by Rudolf Steiner, in 1924 at Koberwitz, which was then Silesia, now part of Poland. I will write more soon about what it is to actually implement the living knowledge.. part hints, part do the work and and find out for yourself...of the agriculture lectures. But for now , it is about enlivening the Earth , giving the kingdoms of nature what they need to regenerate, by following rhythms of the moon, sun, planets and stars; by using the special preparations as detailed by Steiner; by engaging with beings of nature who hold the physical world together... and much more. It turns ones land or garden into another realm, or dimension almost. You will see my products here, my garden, sometimes a bit of the process behind the scene. Customers remark on the vibrancy of TF goods..
there’s a lot behind it.. not just stirring together some high quality oils, bought herbs and additives. There is soul behind it, that ineffable .. moving, enlivening domain which one needs to make, constantly,, it’s a process, not an object. There is 30 years of experience with Flower Essences, herbalism, aromatherapy, hydrosols, homeopathy and hands on healing. And it all began with gardening.....listening deeply.. and continuing to learn.. with utter wonder at it all.  #organicskincare#herbalism#perfumery#naturalperfume#biodynamic #greenbeauty#apothecary#plantmedicine#plantlove#naturelove#iliveinagarden
