Drawing on his worldwide perspective, Peter Proctor shows, in very practical ways, how the application of biodynamic agriculture results in better soils, quality food, healthy plants, healthy and contented animals, and enthusiastic farmers and consumers. All practitioners will find ways to deepen their understanding, not only of the daily outward work, but also of the foundations upon which our world rests and how to bring these into our daily life.
