This ability has resulted in a new culture of farming that is able to create biologically active soils of highest quality out of the most hostile conditions imaginable.

And this solubility — since Justus von Liebig — has been a major aim of conventional agricultural science. Steiner in Switzerland in the late s and studied it thereafter, deciding at an early age that farming was his calling.

He also realised that Australian conditions, far more than the conditions prevailing in Europe, required special emphasis upon the “cow horn preparation” – enumerated ‘Preparation ” – that Steiner had sketched in his lectures.
