'These lines are written in the hope that the introduction and development of biodynamic methods may be furthered by methodical instruction. It is only a beginning, for in spite of fifteen years of practical work, we are but standing on the borders of a new world of knowledge and of life.' Ehrenfried Pfeiffer, 1938.

This classic work by a pioneer of biodynamics lays out the details of the biodynamic method. Following Rudolf Steiner's indications, early biodynamic farmers and gardeners experimented with the methods, and this book passes on their valuable practical experience. It includes sections on compost in wet climates, the treatment of fruit trees, and crop rotation.


Ehrenfried Pfeiffer (1899-1961) was born in Munich. He visited the USA several times in the 1930s, was awarded a doctorate for his groundbreaking Sensitive Crystallisation theory as a blood test for detecting cancer, and emigrated there in 1940. He pioneered biodynamic agriculture in the USA and helped found the Biodynamic Farming & Gardening Association. He died in Spring Valley, New York.
