JPI has given many workshops in which numerous people have been taught to make their own BC.
JPI may be able to arrange for you and your gardening group to have your own workshop on your site with an instructor who has been through a JPI workshop on BC.

One of the world's best kept secrets, or perhaps most suppressed, is that food grown biodynamically using one particular preparation results in crops free of radioactive contamination. That preparation is the BC-Biodynamic Compound preparation or as it is popularly known, the Barrel Compost recipe of Maria Thun. It has also been called Manure Concentrate, Fladenpreparate, and CPP or Cow Pat Preparation.
This preparation was in development by Maria Thun from 1958 to 1972. In 1986, after the Chernobyl disaster, certain biodynamic farms using the BC did not show radioactivity readings although neighboring conventional farms as well as biodynamic farms not using the BC were showing radioactive contamination. This information was not recognized by the scientists conducting the tests, because, according to Maria Thun, "---they did not give any written confirmation of this to avoid the claim that a means against radioactivity exists."
Biodynamic research has never been supported by mainstream agricultural science. The nuclear disaster in Japan serves as a reminder of the importance of this research. Funding is desperately needed to further this research to prove the efficacy of Biodynamics.

It's once again time to harvest Dandelions for making our BD #506, Dandelion Preparation. In the past we have had many individuals and groups support us by picking, drying and shipping dandelions to us. We are offering $25 for a dried pound. If you would like to contribute, please contact us. If you have questions about how and when to properly harvest dandelions, please read on.
