Biodynamic gardening


A little film about our organic allotment and some of the biodynamic gardening methods we use to enhance the health and vitality of our crops. Nettle tea for overall health, the ‘cow pat pit’ for incredibly potent, life-giving soil improvement, ‘mausdorf starter’ for maintaining the perfect compost heap……

There are loads of other amazingly effective organic and biodynamic methods that I’ll write about and film at a later date. In the meantime I hope you enjoy this little Autumnal video tour of our allotment garden.

Homegrown happiness!

      The nettle fertiliser from last year definitely won’t kill your plants Sue, but fresh would be better. We’ve got lots of fresh nettle tips appearing down south. Anything up North yet? Amazingly good for your plants (and for us too actually – nettle soup is delicious)! xx
