Biodynamic Compost (Soil Builder & Innoculant)
The last photo is the blend activating when it comes in to contact with the Earth - the second to last is my humus stained hand with clusters of beneficial bacteria and fungus in the background, all through and over the pile, radiating life - the most active and living blend we have made thus far.
This is similar to our Bioactive Compost but has been seriously enhanced and taken to a new level - with various different raw minerals, Rare Earths, Biodynamic Trace Elements and Rock Minerals. We have also added 7 Biodynamic preparations and inoculated with our own horn manure biology builder (BD500)
What makes this blend so essential for No Till agriculture and self sufficient agriculture is the ability it has in restoring soils back to their primal state, enabling the plants themselves with a life force to keep pest and disease off, enabling them also to draw what they need from the atmosphere and from the forces deep in the Earth itself, rather than just the soil. Restoring the balance's between Earth and the assisting planets & constellations.
The plants can then convert minerals such as Calcium and Potassium into Nitrogen as needed, Reducing Nitrogen inputs drastically, with increasing availability of all essential nutrients.
It sounds intense, and it is.. but this is what Biodynamics is about! Holistically seeing the Earth as part of our Cosmic environment also.
Apart from all that I think the Dandelion preparation - 506 is incredibly important. Mainly because through its silicic acid (silica is a main component of sense organs in humans and also animals) processes it enlivens the manure with this same sensory perception, which then passes onto the plant the force it needs to equip it with the ability to draw into it that which it needs from the surrounding environment.
This should be viewed as;
*Pest and Disease Treatment
And used to ;
*Unlcock The Soil
*Balance Ecosystem Health
*Boost Plant Growth
*Reduce the frequency of watering
*Stimulate & Awaken Biology
*Decompose Mulch Quicker
*Speed Up Compost Piles
*Boost Blooms And Colours
*Promote Rapid Growth
*Increase Harvest Quality & Quantity
*Increase Nutrition Drastically
*Increase Brix Sugar Levels
*Increase Shelf Life
*Better Utilise Minerals & Nutrients
*Create More Self Sufficiency In The Garden
*Reduce Time To Harvest
This is Kanes personal bend used on his Biodynamic, No Till Mixed Research Farm in Wongawallan. If you want to see it in action jump on our Instagram/Facebook as all photo updates can be found on there.
Application rate for the growing season;
Home garden - 2bags per 5m2 (1inch)
Hobby farm/Urban Farm - 1m3 / 150m2 (40bags) - 2m3 for depleted soils
Can be worked into the soil prior to planting and deep mulched, or Top dressed, watered in and mulched over the top. (directions in application rate page)
ALWAYS MULCH TO KEEP BIOLOGY WORKING
This is far too rich to plant into, so best used at 15-30% if you are making any DIY blends!
