Our guest this week is the ever-enthusiastic evangelist about biodynamics, Steven Wynbrandt. He’s the founder of Wynbrandt Farms and Wynbrant Farms Biodynamic Compost. Steven teaches biodynamics around the world and puts his training into practice in his own garden in Los Angeles.
We met years ago at the beginning of his story, and his biodynamic compost business has taken off since. We chat about the basics of biodynamics, his composting process, and his new compost tea option for non-locals.
