During my travels across America for OrganicNation.tv, I’ve been lucky to visit many beautiful farms and gardens. But none have captivated my imagination quite like Frog Hill Farm in Port Townsend, Washington.
The farm’s diverse acres include woodlands, an herb and flower garden, wetlands, pastures for goats, ducks and chickens as well as neat rows of vegetables. Sebastian Aguilar, who runs the farm with his family, has taken his organic certification to the next level by employing biodynamic farming practices.
Be sure to press “full-screen”:
Did you notice all the bird calls in the background? Or the fact that more than one species of plant and animal can be sustained in the environment? An often misunderstood technique due to it’s roots in Rudolph Steiner’s esoteric spiritual philosophy, biodynamic agriculture treats farms as unified organisms and emphasizes the relationship of soil, plants and animals. It seems like a great way to continue improving on organic models to make farming truly sustainable.
