"...it seems the Prince has inspired a new generation of 'cosmic' farmers, who grow fruit and vegetables according to signs of the zodiac and encourage their cows and sheep to develop a personality. The Prince first learnt about biodynamics during a trip to Australia in 2005. The theory, developed almost a century ago by Austrian philosopher Rudolf Steiner, bases its planting schedule on the astrological calendar and the positions of the Sun, Moon and Saturn. Prince Charles later organised workshops for farmers and gardeners who work his land in the Duchy of Cornwall and at his Highgrove estate in Gloucestershire....Biodynamic farming involves the use of homeopathic potions sprayed on to leaves and soil fertilisers developed using horn manure – prepared by rotting down dung by stuffing it into cow horns which are then buried. The potions are said to generate harmony between the land and the cattle....Prince Charles's influence is being credited with doubling the membership of the Biodynamic Association (BDA), which in five years has grown from 500 to 1,000."
