Richard Thornton Smith describes the foundations on which biodynamics as well as the more general organic movement is based. He builds bridges between mainstream science and Steiner’s insights, making it easier for the broader organic and ecological movement to approach biodynamic concepts and practice.
Cosmos, Earth, and Nutrition has much to offer for the beginner, as well as for those already involved with biodynamics. Its broad range of topics include the ecology of the farm organism; food quality and nutrition; community supported agriculture (CSA); planetary influences; seed quality; and the vitality of water, all contributing to a deeper understanding of the subject. The author is also concerned with promoting innovation, so that biodynamics moves forward with the times. An appendix includes details for contacting various elements of the biodynamic world.
