Biodynamic Agriculture Australia View their web page
We have been a member of the BD group for 20 years and it is one of the not so secret ingredients that has allowed our garden to flourish in a challenging environment.
One of our neighbours ( now sadly passed away) came to see the garden 10 years after we initially moved in – his comment was its a miracle this used to be a blooming rock pile!
Each year there will be opportunities for people to come and learn about biodynamics plus have some hands on in making and using the preparations.
Christopher also supports the organisation through collecting cow horns and making valerian preparation.

If you live in a rural area then donating to the RFS is a no brainer.
After the 2019 & 2020 Bush fires this organisation showed what true leadership looks like.
In the good old Aussie tradition of shit stirring Get Up fits the bill in the political and social sphere. In a time where even the most modest of environmental or social changes causes politicians to behave like wilting wallflowers Get Up champions issues for a better Australia. I grew up in 1970’s Australia thinking that progressive politics was the way it always was. Get Up embodies that drive for a fairer, more just and environmentally sound Nation.
