Rudolf Steiner intended to inaugurate a rational and scientific, as well as spiritual, method of agriculture. In the first four lectures of his Agriculture Course, he outlined the spiritual-scientific foundations for the biodynamic preparations at the heart of this new method of agriculture. Unless these foundations are understood, the preparations will remain a riddle. We will review these initial lectures with their many difficult-to-understand details and uncover the systematic principles contained in Steiner's highly condensed indications.
