Local Geraldton farmer, Adriaan Frick explains why he chose to get a Manitou to do all the material handling in his farm: “We worked with @manitou_australia before and I liked the machine. They are good, reliable, low-maintenance and easy to work with. I was looking for something that can do the general lifting and some of the heavier work in the farm. We found that the Manitou was the most suitable to the Australian conditions, they are strong and had a better cooling system compare to all the other European brands.” #farming#agriculture#manitou#telehandler
#biodynamics is a step further as compared to #organic#farming : not only does it exclude the use of synthetic chemical fertilizers, but it also tries to #regenerate the terroir, through preparations 500 and 501, which are adopted to regenerate #soil , increasing its #fertility and humus, and to ensure that plants find a life-giving #environment in which to grow. Plants are considered in their overall context, including the natural setting and the #energy they receive from the ground and from the air, the wildlife and the insects, the rain and the wind, the light and the heat, the sun and the moon, the planets and the stars. In short, plants are thought of as living in a microcosm, but also as part of the cosmic system. If all the above factors are harmoniously balanced, plants grow healthy and lush, achieving their maximum potential, and yield excellent fruit rich in flavours and healthful substances.
Step 1: Biodynamic preparations are one way to heal the Earth of agricultural activities. The six #compost preparations are made from specific herbs: yarrow flowers, chamomile blossoms, nettle, oak bark, dandelion blossoms, and valerian flowers. All are made with a sensitivity to the rhythms of the sun and zodiac. Once buried it will have the appearance of well-ripened compost... it's the good stuff of the Earth and also what's pictured here in this off the grid garden. 🔸
