Help Us Continue to Energize and Potentize the Biodynamic Community

Flow forms are used by many biodynamic practitioners to enliven water and stir biodynamic preparations. The Biodynamic Association (BDA) works in a similar way. Through our work, the BDA energizes and potentizes the biodynamic community, co-creating positive transformation through dynamic movement.

This fall and winter, the Biodynamic Association seeks to raise $60,000 to support the further development of our work. The world is in deep need of healing, and the Biodynamic Association’s resources, educational programs, and information are more sought after than ever before. We are asking our members and friends to give generously, recognizing the critical role of BDA in transforming agriculture in North America.

The Food Tells the Story

By Sally Voris: This year, I realized that making biodynamic preparation BD 500 develops intimacy the way good storytelling does.
