I wonder if there might be interest in a forum for biodynamic stuff.

I'm not much into biodynamic stuff, but several people that I very much respect are.  And it seems like there is enough cross pollination between the two, that it could be worthwhile to have a forum here dedicated to it.

I suspect biodynamics is unlikely to get enough traffic on its own to warrant a separate forum.
Maybe  bd experts/exponents on permies will have an opinion.

I would LOVE a biodynamic forum!!!

One of the leaders at Wintergreen Farm, near Portland, Oregon, where I live, said in April 2011, that it was observed, after Chernobyl, informally observed, that the Biodynamic farms in Europe registered no elevated radiation levels.

That is the most hopeful thing I have heard on the subject of detoxing radiation.

It is informal observation, but indicates a direction very well worth pursuing.

This is important to me, as we are getting zapped with radiation with every rain here in Portland, and the government says nothing.

So I am VERY interested to know more.

I love your recent podcast on Biodynamics, Paul. The one you did in Bellingham.
