Review by Paul Rushton
Biodynamic Gardening is a clear, practical and beautifully visual guide for both seasoned and less-experienced gardeners wishing to harness the natural resilience and regenerative potential of the organic garden. It points us towards the profound vitality and connection to be found in bringing balance to our soils and spaces.
This book is of great relevance to our times as we continue to recognise the value and importance of true sustainability and a more honest, conversational and reciprocal relationship with the natural world around us. It reminds us that gardening can empower us, bolster our wellbeing and draw us in to the most subtle and most expansive of natural cycles and influences.
Biodynamic gardening provides the tools to restore the life and vibrancy of the garden. It equips us to nurture and harvest plants and crops of increased quality, strength and flavour, and to support the health of the soil without ecological cost. Our gardens can become places of greater harmony and positivity with which to infuse our wider lives.
