Soil is the source of food production. The six inches of the top soil we know as humus is the reservoir of all bio- chemical substances by which all vegetation is able to grow and produce.
Thus not only is Humus the very source of food production it is a' self propagating and self regulating' world of complex dynamics which manifests in the form of forests, grass lands, shelters and habitats.
As per the Gaia hypothesis organisms interact with their inorganic surroundings on Earth to form a synergistic self-regulating, complex system that helps to maintain and perpetuate the conditions for life on the planet.
Rudolf Steiner's perception of the natural world and its complex intra -relation with all its creations be in physical or biochemical indicates that mega cosmic energies permeate micro cosmic entities with their impressions and knit them into the cosmic weave.
Biodynamic Agriculture heals tired, emaciated and depleted soil to trigger off its syntropy thus enables healthy and balanced farms. The quality of the food and health of animals are notably preponderated by the increased population of soil biology, earthworms, bees, nesting birds and other natural habitats.
