Light Root Community Farm’s practices are deeply rooted in the methods and philosophy of Biodynamic Agriculture, with a focus on building a holistic, diverse and self-sustaining farm. Biodynamic agriculture is a path that works to enliven the Earth thru our conscious land stewardship, reverent animal husbandry, and life promoting farming practices.
We see the Farm as a living organism, with its own individuality shaped by the local land, the plants, and the animals, which are woven together in a harmonious relationship by the creativity and will forces of the Farmer. The biodynamic Farmer cultivates a spiritual consciousness and an awakened relationship to the land, working with both the natural rhythms of the earth and the cosmic rhythms from above to promote health and vitality. We strive to create a farm that is balanced in its diversity, produces its own fertility, and promotes health in the soil, plants, animals and farm community.
