Essentiallly, Bio-Dynamics is a chemical free regenerative agriculture that produces both healthier food and soil. It has been called an advanced organic method of farming. Soil is developed and then maintained using appropriate land management practices that are in harmony with nature. In Bio-Dynamics the method is designed biologically to begin the life of the soil and plant. Plants feed through Humus the natural process in the active developed soil. The soil cares for the plants as opposed to the artificial direct feeding of the plant. Developed in Europe by Rudolf Steiner in 1924, Bio-Dynamic farming was brought to Australia in 1951.
