What exactly Is Biodynamic?
Organic and biodynamic approaches are very similar; both involve raising foods without chemicals and GMOs. Organic farming focuses on achieving food of high nutritional quality and optimum quantities without using artificial fertilizers, synthetic chemicals, genetic modification, antibiotics, growth promoters, hormones or pesticides. However, biodynamic takes it a step further than organic. It is a holistic practice where all things are viewed as living and interrelated systems – animals, plants and the solar system. Unlike traditional farming methods, biodynamic practices create healthier plants and heals the earth by replenishing the soil and adding vitality to the plant, soil and livestock.
Upon entering Pantry LA, the community is instantly greeted by vibrant artwork, chalkboard menu descriptors, and a retail space where knowledgeable staff and naturopaths are stationed to answer any and all biodynamic related questions.
