Integrating animals into the farm organism is a key principle of biodynamics. As simple as that concept may seem at first glance, there are many layers. The farmer or gardener strives for a balance of domestic animals, crops, and wild animals and vegetation, with the goal of making the organism as ecologically healthy and self-sustaining as possible. This integration helps to develop a coherent, holistic “individuality.”
The principle itself does not dictate how this balance can be created in any particular farm or garden, as the farmer or gardener, as part of this organism, needs to observe and sense the dynamics and interactions of their own unique land. Whatever your scale or situation, we hope this issue provides helpful insights.
