ISBN: 088010709X


illustrations While the benefits of Steiner's research into agriculture and education are increasingly recognized, his research into the nature of bees has had limited impact on beekeeping practices and on our general understanding of nature. Wisdom of the Bees examines Steiner's insights and research into the nature of bees and their implications for the future of beekeeping. Today, more than eighty years after Rudolf Steiner presented his lectures on bees, we are confronted with a serious decline of honeybees around the world. This fact alone justifies Wisdom of the Bees, a p... View more info

Is farming funny (punny)? Biodynamic farming? In this lively and wide-ranging selection of twenty-five short vignettes, John Bloom muses amusingly on, if not all, then many things under the sun. Beginning with an inquiring mind, a sharp wit, and a vegetable (in that order), Mr. Bloom bounds from the biodynamic soil of Live Power Farm CSA in California, glides through literature, art, language, and history (all vegetable-related, of course), and lands back down in the rich compost of possibility. Inspired, above all, by his deep appreciation for the CSA model (and the food... View more info

You might have heard that bees are in trouble. Actually, it is we who are in trouble. Honeybees are essential to the health of our planet and our food supply, and backyard beekeepers may be the answer to increasing our population of strong, healthy honeybees. We can contribute substantially as beekeepers. We can help in a thousand ways to save and increase our honeybee population while watching our gardens grow! “Sensitive Beekeeping” means many things—beekeeping without fear and without a veil; beekeeping for the sake of the bee instead of profit; and learning to ca...

A healthy culture implies a healthy agriculture. Beyond the technology and use of machines, today rapidly developing technology (i.e., "genetic engineering") extends into the realm of life, which we can, and therefore do, manipulate for the ostensibly noble purpose of feeding the people of the world. Life, however, is not mechanical. To begin to comprehend life, something is desperately needed - a fundamental shift in our approach, one that seeks to comprehend the qualities of the living organism as a whole, and in relation to its whole environment, which extends, ul...

“[The student] should look at the world with keen, healthy senses and quickened power of observation, and then surrender to the feeling that arises within.... This feeling penetrates the superficial aspect of things and in so doing touches their secrets.” —Rudolf Steiner How can we progress from the ordinary, everyday vision of the senses to perception of the subtle life and spiritual forces around us—the very forces that shape nature? Basing his work on the research of Goethe and Rudolf Steiner, Roger Druitt begins with a fundamental question: What ca... View more info

The Metamorphosis of Plants (1790) is undoubtedly Goethe’s best known and most famous scientific work. In 123 short paragraphs the great German poet, philosopher and scientist accompanies the plant through all its outward transformations, from its development of a seed to its reformation into a seed. “If we observe all forms, especially the organic forms, we find that nothing is permanent, nothing is at rest, nothing concluded, but, on the contrary, that all is in continuous fluctuating movement. Nothing is held fast in experience for a single moment.”“Nature is forever... View more info

60 colour photos, 3 colour illustrations, 21 black & white illustrations, The Metamorphosis of Plants, published in 1790, was Goethe's first major attempt to describe what he called in a letter to a friend "the truth about the how of the organism." Inspired by the diversity of flora he found on a journey to Italy, Goethe sought a unity of form in diverse structures. He came to see in the leaf the germ of a plant's metamorphosis--"the true Proteus who can hide or reveal himself in all vegetal forms"--from the root and stem leaves to the calyx and corolla, to pistil and sta...

Practising the biodynamic method of agriculture - sometimes referred to as 'premium organic' - he is at the forefront of a movement to return to the concept of terroir, as full expression and embodiment of a particular grape-growing locality, or appelation.

We constantly notice when we are out talking to winemakers in different wine regions that more and more producers pay attention to how what they do in the vineyard affects the environment. Many winemakers that we meet start the process of 'converting' to organic farming. There are rules for what that means—what an organic farmer can do and what is forbidden—rules that come both from public or government organizations and from private organizations. In addition, people also talk more and more about other related approaches: biodynamic winemaking, natural wines, sustainable farming. ... View more info

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. Ad... View more info

illustrations In 1924 at Koberwitz, the estate of Count and Countess Keyserlingk, Rudolf Steiner gave a key course of lectures on agriculture. At a time when industrial methods were being introduced into farming, Steiner had a radically different, evolutionary vision. Based on a revitalized relationship with nature, his approach encompassed knowledge of the cosmos, the elemental world and the Earth, and utilized special planting methods and preparations. Today biodynamic agriculture is widely valued and used around the world. In addition to the lively and entertaining accounts of the... View more info

"In healing processes or in the general growth of the body, the formation of bone or the formation of a tissue from a fluid is a sclerotic process. We can call it the formation of tissue from fluid growth, but technically it is sclerotic. Sclerosis, which is considered to be a disease process, is therefore a natural process in the body. Inflammation and infection that can kill you and sclerosis are both the body’s natural healing processes. Steiner mentions this and asks, So, where does the illness come in? This is a really a very good question. The answer he gives is this: Illness i... View more info
