Hamish Mackay & John Priestley – Sun, Moon & Planets Influencing Plants & Animals

Using the Planting Calendar to optimise production is part of a One Day Workshop: An Introduction to BIODYNAMICS:Grazing, Cropping & Horticulture. Astro effects on both farming and human activities has been known for 1000s of years by many different cultures. Understanding and guaging the results through your own observations has led to often simple benefits such as growing straight carrots instead of twisted ones! In fact there is much to be gained as you’ll discover in this DVD as Hannish and John tell you their stories.Everyone is aware that the high and low tides in the sea are the effect of the lunar movement but not everyone is aware of the astro effects on plants, animals and us. It costs little to become aware of the astro effects and what can be gained

Hamish Mackay – How to Make Biodynamic Compost

Biodynamic composting is regarded by many to be the ultimate method of composting. Starting with conventional farm sourced materials plus the addition of biodynamic preps and minerals it usually requires turning once. It is then covered and left to ‘do its own thing’ while heat and the fermentation process along with the worms ‘cleans’ up the materials producing a compost rich in a broad spectrum of microbes and plant available minerals.

This DVD shows how to build compost in static piles, in cow pat pits and then how to prepare the sprays and to broadcast them by hand.Watch and listen as Hamish starts from scratch and invites participants to build the compost pile with him.
