In this remarkable series of lectures, delivered in 1924, Rudolf Steiner first laid down the principles of biodynamic agriculture. Each lecture contains fascinating insights into farming, the plant and animal world, the nature of organic chemistry and the influences of the heavenly bodies. The discussions which followed are also recorded, in which Steiner answered questions and engaged in debate with the audience. This edition comes with full editorial notes and appendices, and includes Steiner’s own handwritten notes to the series.

In addition to the eight lectures, this edition includes:

      • Four discussions by Rudolf Steiner;
      • Color plates of Steiner’s blackboard drawings;
      • An address to the members of the Agricultural Experimental group;
      • Rudolf Steiner’s report to members of the Anthroposophical Society following the lectures;
      • Rudolf Steiner’s handwritten notes for the course;
      • Additional agricultural indications by Rudolf Steiner;
      • An essay: “New Directions in Agriculture,” by Ehrenfried E. Pfeiffer, a biodynamic pioneer in North America.

This book is the primary resource for anyone involved in biodynamic gardening or farming.

Agriculture is a translation from German of the book Geisteswissenschaftliche Grundlagen zum Gedeihen der Landwirtschaft. Landwirtschaftlicher Kursus (GA 327).
