Ron and Bev Smith share one of their tips learned from years of experience running a biodynamic dairy farm. Ron shows us how he uses his kit to measure the energy of his rock dust. He describes how Phil Callahan’s book ‘Paramagnetism’ exposes the value of knowing the value of this energy. Phil’s other books:”Tuning in to Nature” and “Nature’s Silent Music” circle the world, and tell the story of birds and insects as exquisite magnetic antennae.

Bruce show us an owl perch for rabbit control. Owls will sit on these post and look around for rabbit and when they see one, it will be a nice meal. These owl perches are high enough to stop predators like fox and dogs harming the owls. No poisonous rabbit bates has to be used.
