From a Member: Sharing Resources with the Community of Spiritual Agriculture

By Claudia J. Ford: Through the practices of biodynamic agriculture, we are encouraged to experience and substantiate our spiritual insights in the quality of our soil, the chemistry of our compost, the health of our animals, the taste of our foods and wines, and the healing properties of our sacred medicinal plants. For these reasons I thankfully renew my membership in the Biodynamic Association, and I urge others to join me.
