Australian Demeter Bio-Dynamic

Demeter Bio-dynamic briefly explained

Australian Demeter Bio-dynamic is the oldest method and highest certification for organic farming and gardening in the World, which today is important when growing food.

Australian Demeter Bio-dynamic is the name used to identify the Biodynamic method developed in Australia by Alex Podolinsky, since 1952.

It is based on Biodynamic preparations of the highest organic quality, which has been refined in Australia under Alex’s guidance, working from the insights of
Rudolf Steiner and the scientific experimentation of Ehrenfried Pfeiffer.

The practical application of the farmers of the Bio-Dynamic Agricultural Associationof Australia (BDAAA) has established Australian Demeter BD as a world leader in the development of:

  • soil structure

  • the humus on which that soil depends for its fertility and resilience

  • the growth of healthy plants under the influence of the sun

    – and produce of the highest quality in both flavour and nutrient density

The success of the method depends on plants feeding themselves according to nature, through nutrients which are held within the humus content of the soil, not through water soluble nutrient in the soil water.

Ideally, each farm operates as a closed unit, using the preparations in combination with the soil, climate and seasonal variation with which the farmer works.
