Two Suns — Nightly Work

North American Biodynamic Conference

The North American Biodynamic Conference brings together 700-1000 farmers, gardeners, educators, students, activists, entrepreneuers, and others interested in biodynamics from across the continent — and beyond. The largest biodynamic gathering on this continent, this conference offers an unparalleled opportunity to connect, learn, question, share, and explore over the course of five days of programming. 

The BDA staff team and BDA board have been gathering in deep conversations and holding particular sensitivity to the ongoing uncertainties and circumstances still facing our world this year, including the needs of the biodynamic communities we serve, and the meaningful and intensive work of unification of the BDA and Demeter USA. Given these dynamic times, we have determined that it will be in the best interest of the health of this emerging organization and the biodynamic ecosystem as a whole not to host a conference in 2021. Find out more here.
