The eight biodynamic preparations – Horn manure (500), Horn silica (501), Yarrow, Chamomile, Nettle, Oak bark, Dandelion and Valerian – are a key part of biodynamic agriculture, and are often produced locally on biodynamic farms to well-established recipes. As biodynamic methods have spread across the globe, more adaptation has become necessary to suit different climates, fauna, seasons and regulations. This book offers fifteen worldwide case studies from experienced practitioners, ranging from European locations (Germany, France, Sweden, Netherlands and Italy) to Egypt, Brazil, America, New Zealand and India. This is a valuable reference guide for those involved in biodynamics around the world.
