One of our favorite products to offer for the garden: Malibu Biodynamic soil and compost is a great way to enliven and enrich your soil. Biodynamic agriculture views the soil as a living organism, rather than a support system for growing plants. This in turn improves the earth and gives back, while reaping the nutritional and delicious benefits of organic gardening. Biodynamics have been in play since the 1920’s as a response to the loss of soil fertility with the heavy use of industrial synthetic fertilizers and pesticides. Rudolf Steiner started the movement of biodynamics, and anyone who uses this method will passionately testify to the quality of their crops in taste, size, and beauty.
Compost is key to biodynamic gardening, and the major difference in biodynamic compost as opposed to regular compost blends are special homeopathic preparations of stinging nettle, yarrow, chamomile, oak bark, dandelion, and valerian. These preparations have specific relationships to macro and micro nutrients within the compost, ultimately helping the plant get the most out of your soil, while in turn improving the soil.
