Winemakers over the moon with biodynamic viticulture Biodynamic methods - sometimes described as "organic-plus" - are based on writings by Austrian philosopher Rudolph Steiner. As well as excluding chemicals, the focus is on soil improvement - hence the cow horn and other homeopathic enhancers - as well as working the vines when the plants and conditions are ready, rather than to human schedules. An estimated 15 per cent of European wine production is biodynamic, with the US not too far behind, while it is also growing in Australia, where about 50 wineries have adopted it.

Seven Stars Farm Sets the Standard for Organic Farming Seven Stars Farm has its origins with philanthropists Mabel Pew Myrin and husband Alarik Myrin. In 1939, they purchased 1,000 acres of farmland northwest of Phoenixville, naming it Kimberton Farms.

The property was eventually divided between the school and Camphill Village Kimberton Hills, a farming, gardening and handcrafting community that caters to adults with developmental disabilities.

Half-science, half-mysticism, the world of biodynamic wine is weird and wonderful Organic, biodynamic and natural wines are increasingly apparent on menus across London's restaurants and wine bars, though most customers are unaware of the distinctions between them. Organics are grown without synthetic pesticides or fertilisers, and with far fewer chemicals, colourings and preservatives than conventional wines. On organic vineyards farmers will avoid intervention, opting instead to plant a diverse selection of plants and vegetables to attract wildlife that naturally help keep the vines disease and pest-free. At Chateau Smith Haut Lafitte in Bordeaux, they lace the soil with butterfly-attracting pheromones. (Saturday July 7th, 2018 — City A.M. - London, UK)

The massive experiment in New Orleans schools that few have noticed "What personalization means to the Gates Foundation is a specific - it's software," said Audrey Watters, author of a forthcoming book on the history of educational technology. She pointed out that Montessori schools and Waldorf schools have been doing their own version of personalized learning for 100 years, one that emphasizes free play and imagination. But "the Gates Foundation hasn't spent $10 billion funding Waldorf schools," Watters said. "They've been funding a particular vision of what personalization means. And it's one that is very wrapped up in the idea that the way that one personalizes education is through software that both mines student data and algorithmically presents students with the concept they need to learn."
