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.

Adalbert Count Keyserlingk, the son of the hosts, was present, and this book reflects his life-long absorption in biodynamic methods. It presents a wide range of material, including the count's personal experiences of Steiner at work, his reflections on practical research and experimentation (including photographic documentation), and descriptions of biodynamic preparations. More than anything else, his words successfully convey the enthusiasm, the exalted feelings, and the power of initiative that arose from Rudolf Steiner's work in this field - to develop a method of farming that provides nutritious, safe food for the future.
