Poke (Ink Weed) Berries in the treatment of Cancer; Rheumatism, Arthritis and Bone Spurs 

by Shabari Bird   reprinted from Nexus Journal
In 1973, I was diagnosed with stage 4 non-Hodgkin’s
Lymphoma. I left Sloan-Kettering Hospital in shock. I was
twenty-four years old and an up and rising woman
stock broker. My heart longed for nature and I decided to
move to my parent’s summer cabin in the Blueridge Mountains
of North Georgia. I had wisely decided to fight back this death sentence.
I chose the Gerson regime and fasted on carrot and
other vegetable juices for nearly a year.

Biodynamic Gardening with reference to Hugh Lovel’s  mentor Peter Escher(1903-1984)

Our friend Peter Escher, for instance, deliberately avoids fancified concepts. "Don't start out by reading about biodynamics," he urges. "You should first observe very quietly and carefully what is going on with your crops and soil. You see, if you come right down to brass tacks, people don't look. Biodynamics is not simply using this spray and that stuff, it's thinking for yourself.
 I would never want to work with someone who takes everything for granted."
So here's how Peter describes the basics of biodynamics: "What you want to do is create a stable humus. Now you can read a lot of books about soils, but the quickest definition I know of for a stable humus is `what comes out of the business end of an earthworm'! Most growers don't think in those terms. They ask `What spray schedule do you use?' That is completely misleading. The guy who's on the right track is the one who grabs me by the scruff of the neck, takes me out to his apple orchard or whatever, and shows me how he handles his soil!"
The other clear-cut fundamental in Escher's eyes is that the grower should maintain an attitude of "intensive reverence" for the land. "The most important rule in farming is that a good farmer prays, while a `tractor operator' doesn't. I don't care whether that grower even uses commercial or toxic sprays. If he's devout, if he realizes there's something in the soil that's greater than he is, he'll get a touch for the land and go on to learn what to do and when."

Earth Generated Water: an answer for the future

From Christopher Bird's Book  The Divining Hand
A Stockholm professor of mineralogy and arctic explorer, Adolf Erik Nordenskiold, had written a paper, "About Drilling for Water in Primary Rocks" which concluded that one could sink wells capable of producing water the year round along the northern and southern coasts of the Mediterranean, and in the whole of Asia Minor, or exactly in those areas of the world from which conference delegates most concerned about water supply problems hailed.

Nordenskiold, whose essay won him a nomination for the Nobel Prize in physics (he died before full consideration was given to the candidates), spent years drilling in rocky promontories and islands off the Swedish coast to bring water for pilotage stations forced to capture rain or import water. His impetus came from his father, Nils, Chief of Mining in Finland, who told him with some wonderment that while salt water never penetrated iron mines on the Finnish coast even when they were below sea level, fresh water was always present on the rocky floors of the same mines. The Swedish scientist's extensive subsequent bores convinced him that water, produced by some process deep within the earth for which he could not account, could be contacted in hard rock..

A Dairyman's Compost by Hugh Lovel

A Dairyman’s Recipe for Making Stable, Quality Compost
The initial mix of materials should be about 30 to 1 carbon to nitrogen, so manures and fresh, green materials will need a fair bit of other material that is low in nitrogen.

Corn breeding is particularly interesting. On any given ear the genetic contribution from the mother plant is the same for every kernel. It is this genetic simplicity that allowed Barbara McClintock to win a Nobel Prize in 1987 for proving corn mutated every generation. For open-pollinated corn this means saving a minimum of two hundred ears to ensure a stable, reliable breed. Currently I only fulfill this requirement with my orange flint cornmeal, which I've bred for fourteen years. All my other corns are breeding experiments that I don't guarantee as stable. However, I'm growing two kinds of sweet corn, one early and one late; three flint cornmeals, one multicolored hominy dent, and three popcorns. I'm particularly interested in developing a popcorn that is as robust as an ordinary tall flint while still having the small ultra-dense kernels that pop well.

Controlling Weeds and Pests  by Hugh Lovel 
Control is not a synonym for kill. It is one thing to control a lawn mower, and another thing to kill it. When we seek to control weeds we need to find out what gets them started and how they may change under various circumstances. This will help us understand what they do and why they are there, and it will provide valuable clues about how to stop them. The chances are we are unwittingly causing the weed to be a problem, and we should learn from that.
Peppering is a method used by biodynamic practitioners to clear an area of unwanted plants or animals that have become pests, reduce diversity and are resistant to other control measures.

Is Agrohomeopathy in your farming future? by Mark Moodie

I am particularly heartened that, in recent years, there have been original developments from the biodynamic preparations; creativity has been seen to flourish. Conservative feathers have been ruffled, and questions asked about whether this is 'real biodynamics', but it has got to be good for the transition from dogmatic to critical practice. May E BruceGlen Atkinson and Enzo Nastati have taken their lead from these biodynamic preparations but have then potentised them as homeopaths do, although May E Bruce dispensed with the sheaths that are usually used when making the BD preps.
