Thomas Jefferson and Rudolph Steiner? What could they possibly have in common?
In a word... Biodynamics. They both recognized the subtle influences of the wider cosmos, like the phases of the moon and the flux of the seasons, on the health of the soil, the plantlife and the animal world. They found ways to create diversified and balanced ecosystems in the gardens and landscapes that they worked with, generating health and fertility as much as possible from within the land itself.
