The Foundation Stone Verse and Biodynamic Farming

How is the Foundation Stone relevant in the practice of biodynamic farming?

In our fifth installment of our series in Exploring the Foundation Stone, as part of the of the Anthroposophical Society in Southern Africa’s Annual Conference (held on 4th July 2022), we spoke with a biodynamic farmer, Wendy Lilje.

Wendy shares an explanation of what biodynamic farming is, and how it requires a conscious working with the spiritual world. With this backdrop, she compares the Foundation Stone Verse to the Biodynamic Farm Organism. She also shares how she uses the verse in her personal life, as well as on the farm and in the making of the preparations.
