Biodynamic is a method of gardening

that aims to treat the garden as a living system

that interacts with the environment to build healthy, living soil

and to produce food that nourishes and vitalizes humankind. 

Biodynamics emphasizes:

integrating farm animals, caring for the land, using fermented herbal and mineral preparations as compost additives and field sprays, using an astronomical sowing and planting calendar, and local production and distribution systems using local breeds and varieties. 

Community supported agriculture (CSA),

for example, was pioneered by biodynamic farmers. 

One of the first modern ecological farming systems founded by Rudolf Steiner.
