8 Ways to Learn About Biodynamics

1. Explore our online resources

Our What is Biodynamics? page is a good place to start, with multimedia perspectives on biodynamics from several sources. Watch our free 90-minute Intro to Biodynamics webinar to explore the basic concepts of biodynamics in more depth. Read articles about biodynamics in the sample issue of our Biodynamics journal, and browse our research references to find articles, books and other resources about scientific research on biodynamic practices.

2. Participate in a biodynamic workshop or event

Biodynamic workshops and events are organized by education centers and regional groups across North America — check our calendar of events for upcoming opportunities near you.

The Biodynamic Association’s biennial conference is the largest biodynamic event in North America, bringing together hundreds of biodynamic farmers, gardeners, educators, activists and more for four days of inspiring keynotes, informative workshops, networking and great food. Our next conference will take place November 16-20, 2016 in Santa Fe, New Mexico. Audio recordings of workshops from past Biodynamic Conferences are available for purchase.

Scholarships for biodynamic workshops and events are available through the Biodynamic Scholarship Fund. Members of the Biodynamic Association also receive discounts on events we host.

3. Read a biodynamic book

We recommend these books as the most approachable and thorough for newcomers to biodynamics.
