There is a very active Oregon Biodynamic Group within the Biodynamic organization. They have regular meetings and an email list. Many of the members are highly educated and know a lot about the details. I am interested in biodynamic gardening, but at this point, I can't honestly say that I know a lot about it. I am learning gradually, but I find it to be a very interesting movement.

Hello Roberto. My name is Ryan.

First off, kudos on your decision to undertake such a task.

Second, I would start by sectioning or partitioning the property on paper based off the physically visable areas. This would be say a open field next to a forest etc. Then take a soil sample from all area that appear common and uncommon. This would be say each subdivision plus multiple samples from a part of the field that water collects and from where it drains rapidly.

That is where I would start. That will give you definitive soil composition and mineral content from all the nodal regions. Then you can research what composts and minerals to use for what ever you choose to plant/nurture growth.

How far are you from the ocean? That can drastically change what you can grow and how it tastes/looks.

Best wishes!

Greetings. I am interested to know if you still seek collaboration and support. I will be in your area for Samhain and will love to visit. I will love to be part of an Apothecary homestead.

Good Day,

I am very interested in such a project and am involved in a few projects that are similar. I am a practicing permaculture designer and do installations as well. If you need help of any kind please ask.
