Re: “Soil Wealth

Biodynamics brings renewal to much more than grapes:

Following the post-Katrina flood, our city was stripped of its vitality - even areas that hadn't been underwater for weeks were brown, gray, and lifeless. Beginning in early October 2005, as soon as she could get back into the city, a founding member of the biodynamics initiative group here in New Orleans (who'd used the b-d preps in her own Lake Vista garden for years) was applying these preparations monthly, throughout devastated neighborhoods and parks. She was joined by others as they were able, but her dedication to this project was singular, and the results palpable.

Alex Woodward is correct in saying that biodynamics is grounded in a philosophy, but his article never names that philosophy or its founder.

Anthroposophy ( is the name Rudolf Steiner (1861-1925) gave to his spiritual scientific work. In addition to biodynamic agriculture (which pre-dated the organic movement) Steiner's work is also the basis of Waldorf education, anthroposophical medicine, eurythmy, and many other cultural and social endeavors.

The Waldorf School of New Orleans( is in the Irish Channel, next to the largest biodynamic garden ( in the city.

Those west coast wineries aren't the only ones benefiting from Rudolf Steiner's remarkable legacy!
