Project Description: "Biodynamic Agriculture, known as Biodynamic Farming is founded by an Australian Philosopher, Rudolf Joseph Lorenz Steiner, in 1924. During that time, this was the first modern farming in the world where it emphasizes the holistic development and interrelationships of the soil, plants and animal as a self-sustaining system. This is a farming method that is all-natural. Our world is slowly dying, and one factor of this are the chemicals produced every day. This chemicals are used everywhere like in agriculture. Would it be better, if we will go all-natural? Our purpose in doing this website is to promote all – natural farming method to all the nations to give Biodynamic farming importance a chance to be appreciated so that our generation and the next generations to come will use this method. Our group researched to get data about biodynamic farming; then searched for agencies who practice this kind of farming to have actual interviews and observations. We ent to Maryknoll Ecological Sanctuary located at the heart of a city but practices biodynamic farming who promotes Biodynamic farming in the city of Baguio and to nearby municipalities. They promote this method by uniting people through teaching them on how to plant healthy and fresh vegetables without touches of chemicals like artificial fertilizers and pesticides. Along with manure, they use shredded paper soaked in water, weeds to be used as compost, and leftovers from kitchen such as roasted egg shells, ash to remove the stench, fish remnants and sugar for fertilizers. If a company in a city can practice biodynamic farming, we believe that it could be done better in rural areas. Let us dream for a better and greener future for ourselves, and our future generation to enjoy the wonders of nature. One very good way is by practicing biodynamic farming, the topic of our website.
