<B>About Formative Forces in the Plant World </B><I> </I>, VAN ROMUNDE DICK
1 About Formative Forces in the Plant World
VAN ROMUNDE DICK
0967505615 / 9780967505619 
About Formative Forces in the Plant World is a systematic and strictly phenomenological study of the formation of leaves and blossoms in flowering plants. The text is accompanied by numerous beautiful colored illustrations. Carefully following the form of leaf after leaf, Romunde uncovers basic patterns underlying leaf and blossom formation. In doing so, he leads the active reader toward an experience of the creative form-producing potential of the plant. Those who make the effort to inwardly participate in the formative movements Romunde points to will be richly rewarded.

<B>Agriculture Course, Koberwitz, Whitsun 1924 </B><I> Rudolf Steiner and the Beginnings of Biodynamics</I>, SELG, PETER,  BARTON, MATTHEW
2 Agriculture Course, Koberwitz, Whitsun 1924 Rudolf Steiner and the Beginnings of Biodynamics
SELG, PETER, BARTON, MATTHEW
1906999082 / 9781906999087 2010 Paperback 
Recognizing that chemical manipulation of agriculture was neither desirable nor sustainable, Steiner helped launch an agricultural movement whose outlook is truly pioneering in spirit. As Selg describes, Steiner saw that "what was needed instead was new, conscious insight into life forces and laws, into the nature of organisms, into the diverse realms of nature, and the determining factors of both Earth and cosmos that influence them." The vivid picture painted here reveals the importance that Steiner placed on launching this work, as well as the extent to which his initiative offered an answer to the emerging forces of cultural and political destruction that would lead to World War II.

<B>Bees and Honey, From Flower To Jar </B><I> </I>, WEILER, MICHAEL
4 Bees and Honey, From Flower To Jar
WEILER, MICHAEL
0863155758 / 9780863155758 2006 Paperback 
60 b/w illustrations
Bees make honey; we all know that. But what happens between the bee buzzing around our garden, and the sticky knife in the jar, is a mystery to most of us. Based on careful observation and years of experience, Michael Weiler here reveals the secret life of bees. He looks at all aspects of a bee's life and work and vividly describes their remarkable world. Did you know that it takes approximately 12,000 bee-hours to make one jar of honey? (At GBP5.30 per hour, that would mean one jar should cost around GBP63,600.) This is a fascinating book for anyone interested in the intricacies of nature and our world.

50 colour photographs and 8 diagrams
Biodynamics is an internationally recognized approach to organic agriculture in which the farmer or gardener respects and works with the spiritual dimension of the earth's environment. In a world where conventional agricultural methods threaten the environment, biodynamic farms and gardens are designed to have a sound ecological balance. This concise and fully illustrated book presents evidence that biodynamic crops put down deeper roots, show strong resistance to disease and have better keeping qualities than conventionally produced crops.

<B>Biodynamic Farm, The </B><I> Agriculture in Service of Earth and Humanity</I>, KOEPF, HERBERT H.
7 Biodynamic Farm, The Agriculture in Service of Earth and Humanity
KOEPF, HERBERT H.
0880101725 / 9780880101721 Paperback 
Bankrupt farmers, erosion of topsoil, and poor food quality owing to pesticides, hormones, and other additivesùthese are the well-known realities of the modern crisis in farming. This problem is the outcome of the limited vision of conventional methods and a system that focuses exclusively on quick results and profits. The need for changes is clear, and Koepf provides a vast array of research data and results, as well as many helpful details on animal feeding, crop rotation, diseases, pests, and fertilizing. He shows that the biodynamic method of farming and gardening is the alternative that can turn farming around.

Biodynamics is the oldest alternative agricultural movement in the world. It is based on the concept of the whole farm as a single organism. Its goals are to protect and nurture the soil, improve the quality of food, and organically integrate the farm into the environment as a whole. This is an essential reference for all farmers who are unsatisfied with conventional methods and for gardeners who wish to improve the quality of life around them as well as the food they serve their families.

9 Biodynamic Orchard Book, The
PFEIFFER, EHRENFRIED, AND MALTAS, MICHAEL
1782500014 / 9781782500018 2013 
This book brings together the best advice for cultivating fruit trees, berries and shrubs using biodynamic methods, with the aim of harvesting healthy fruit free of pesticides.

Ehrenfried Pfeiffer, a pioneer of biodynamics in North America, discusses the principles of tree biology before describing the measures that can be taken to develop a pest-free orchard without the use of chemicals. He discusses soil preparation, the selection of trees for planting, issues of transplanting and pruning, the application of pastes, green cover crops, and pest control, before describing the key biodynamic preparations and how to spray them with greatest effectiveness.

Michael Maltas ran fruit tree experiments on his biodynamic farm in Missouri for four years. The results are recorded in a highly practical annual spraying schedule for orchards, which is reproduced in this book. A month-by-month calendar gives information on specific methods and controls, based on Maltass extensive experience.

This is an invaluable book with practical advice on all aspects of planning and maintaining a healthy orchard.A thoroughly revised and updated edition of 'Biodynamic Treatment of Fruit Trees, Berries and Shrubs' by Ehrenfried Pfeiffer and 'Orchard Pest Management and Spray Schedule' by Michael Maltas.

<B>Companion Plants </B><I> and How to Use Them</I>, PHILBRICK, HELEN AND GREGG, RICHARD
12 Companion Plants and How to Use Them
PHILBRICK, HELEN AND GREGG, RICHARD
1782502866 / 9781782502869 
It has long been observed, by farmers, gardeners and botanists alike, that from time to time certain plants seem to affect certain other plants growing their near them — both favourably and unfavourably. The observation of these relationships stimulates imagination and sensitiveness of observation to other living relationships and thereby opens new doors to further understanding of the world of nature. By taking account of these relationships, farmers and gardeners can improve the quality of food and flowers, reduce losses from pests and disease, drought and frost, and enhance both satisfaction and pleasure in their work and financial profit.

Years of experimentation by Richard Gregg and subsequently Helen Philbrick and others resulted in this unique reference book. It offers a detailed and comprehensive A-Z of plants and how they affect each other and their surrounding environment, including the soil, insects, and birds.

<B>Developing Biodynamic Agriculture </B><I> Reflections on Early Research</I>, KEYSERLINGK, ADALBERT GRAF VON,  MEUSS, ANNA
13 Developing Biodynamic Agriculture Reflections on Early Research
KEYSERLINGK, ADALBERT GRAF VON, MEUSS, ANNA
1902636139 / 9781902636139 1999 Paperback 
39 b&w illustrations
Genetic manipulation, industrial agriculture, and disregard for natural laws have all led to growing public concern over the safety of the food on our tables. As a result, there is a growing interest in organic methods of farming.
Biodynamic agriculture (the method developed by Rudolf Steiner) is an extension of the organic approach that uses special preparations that enrich the soil and enliven our food by working in harmony with cosmic and earthly forces. Biodynamic agriculture was launched by Steiner at a conference on the Koberwitz estate in Germany.
Adalbert Count Keyserlingk, the son of the hosts, was present, and this book reflects his life-long absorption in biodynamic methods. It presents a wide range of material, including the count's personal experiences of Steiner at work, his reflections on practical research and experimentation (including photographic documentation), and descriptions of biodynamic preparations. More than anything else, his words successfully convey the enthusiasm, the exalted feelings, and the power of initiative that arose from Rudolf Steiner's work in this field - to develop a method of farming that provides nutritious, safe food for the future.

090615524X / 9780906155240 2008 Paperback 
60 b/w illustrations
Ehrenfried Pfeiffer was a pioneer of biodynamics, first in Switzerland and then in the USA in the pre- and post-war years. This wide-ranging book reflects his concern for the different landscapes of the earth, and the effects of industrialisation and mechanisation on our environment. He studies various landscapes, including plains, mountains and woods as well as urban centres, parks and gardens, and explores what factors - natural and artificial - lead to the maintenance or loss of soil fertility. He calls on all people to take responsibility for our landscapes. His opinions and vision for the future are remarkably relevant today, sixty years on from the original publication.

<B>Farmer's Love, A </B><I> Living Biodynamics and the Meaning of Community</I>, MOORA, WALTER
18 Farmer's Love, A Living Biodynamics and the Meaning of Community
MOORA, WALTER
0983198411 / 9780983198413 
A Farmer’s Love is the story of the author's spiritual journey and how his relationship to the Earth evolved from an experience of basic utility to an experience of abiding love.
Farmers seldom bare their souls in books, but Walter Moora struggled and wrestled the words in this book from his heart. He offers more than specific descriptions of farming; he tells his life story as a biodynamic farmer and how he learned the lessons of creating healthy ecosystems on the farm through biodynamic preparations and by planting according to the stars.

The author learned early in his farming career that working with Nature is infinitely more satisfying and ultimately far more successful than working against Nature with chemicals. His experience of farming biodynamically on four continents taught him to listen to what the land itself asks for. A Farmer’s Love explains how nutrition in the food we eat comes directly from nutrition in the soil in which the plans grow. The book also explains ways the author learned to work with the soil to make it nutrient-rich without the use of synthetic chemicals. It chronicles Walter’s experience of learning both the physical and spiritual aspects of creating a whole, healthy farm ecosystem.

Through his life experiences, the author learned to trust his intuition, to take risks around his values, to find his soul’s destiny, and to deal with death and loss by trusting that the very best things can come directly from the very worst things. This story is for those who want to enrich their spiritual connection with the Earth and for budding farmers everywhere who are interested in caring for the Earth in a new way.

<B>Five Hundred </B><I> The Story of Biodynamics</I>, WATKIN, DIANE
20 Five Hundred The Story of Biodynamics
WATKIN, DIANE

This film explores the lives of many growers, retailers, restauranteurs in and around Sydney who choose to follow biodynamics in their lives. They speak passionately from their hearts about why they are making this choice, and through their stories the viewer clearly and gradually learns more about the philosophy and practices.

The story of biodynamics is supported by several scientific studies, either in text or through narration. The story flows from the beautiful introductory images and sounds representing how the invisible becomes visible, to the final words and music underlining the importance of local and world community through a healthier and more harmonious environment.

“Beautiful” , .... “magnificent”, .... “wonderful”, .... (comments from the film’s first première on 11 November in Sydney). Venues have been offered for a “road tour” in Canberra, Blue Mountains, Hunter Valley, and the Central Coast.

The film was edited by film-maker Aanya Whitehead; concept, direction and narration by Diane Watkin, with Peter Hicks as cinematographer
