We have gardened our homestead in Delaware over the last 40 years using both organic and biodynamic gardening methods, without any chemicals or commercial manure. Most importantly, we create our own biodynamic compost using our horses manure. In addition, we use seaweed, rock powders, do soil testing, and plant cover crops.
