Help Us Cultivate a Rich and Dynamic Experience 

at the 2020 Online Biodynamic Conference! 

The Biodynamic Community Needs You!

La información de becas en español está por debajo.

The North American Biodynamic Conference has never been more accessible than it is this year. We hope to be able to fully fund up to 200 scholarship participants for this dynamic and interactive online experience! This opportunity will allow for a widening of our community, uplifting the voice and story of those whose perspectives are different and stirring. We look forward to further raise the awareness and understanding of biodynamic agriculture, which we hope will be greatly enhanced by the online nature of this year's conference.

We are committed to making the Online Biodynamic Conference accessible to all those interested in participating, and we encourage all those who need financial assistance to apply for a scholarship award, even, and especially, those who are new to biodynamic agriculture.

There is work to be done to dismantle racism and make space for diversity, equity, and inclusion at the table that is our greater community. This work is foundational to the healing work of regenerative agriculture now. In our commitment to "...stand in solidarity with people who have been and continue to be systematically excluded from access to land, water, capital, education, organizational and political leadership, and the founding unalienable rights of the United States,” we will prioritize offering scholarships to Black, Indigenous, and People of Color.


We encourage all who are interested to apply! 

We are actively growing and expanding our community to include the voices of those who are not typically found in the center of our circles. Diversity and financial need, therefore, are thoughtfully considered in determining awards. Priority is given to applicants who demonstrate a strong interest in learning about and pursuing biodynamic farming or gardening, including:

Members of the Biodynamic Association (membership starts at only $5/year!)

Black, Indigenous, and People of Color

Trainees enrolled in the Biodynamic Farmer Foundation or Development Years

Existing farmers

Scholarship applications for the 2020 Online Biodynamic Conference are now open, and will be reviewed and awarded on a rolling basis between September 15 and November 1. Early applications are encouraged!

Emily Trujillo, OR

Attending the biodynamic conference gave me the opportunity to be in community with others who care deeply about biodynamic agriculture. The conference also provided me with the opportunity to participate in an in-person educational experience on a variety of topics related to biodynamics. From beekeeping to wine growing, and seed collecting to planting with the biodynamic calendar, the conference provided a rich and engaging learning environment.I look forward to working more deeply with the preparations and planting calendar. Additionally, the preconference winemaking workshops allowed me to experience biodynamics being applied to the area of my interest. I’m grateful for the connections I made with Oregon’s biodynamic winemakers and growers. I feel like I left with a network of community and mentors.

Monica Mejia, MA

As someone who is just beginning to learn about biodynamic practices and its anthroposophical foundations, I felt grateful to participate in the three consecutive morning sessions on “The Spiritual Foundations of Biodynamics.” Each presenter, through their own anthroposophical studies and experience, shared key insights and perspectives through which to frame biodynamic theory and practice. This particular track crystallized understandings for me and illuminated new ideas I feel compelled to explore more. Other workshops opened my eyes to other aspects of Biodynamics, such as the spirit of the bee, seed saving for farm individualization, and biodynamic practices in other parts of the world.

In addition to the programming of the conference, I experienced genuine connection with people from all over the world. The diversity of pursuits, interests, stories, and wisdom was beautiful to experience. From this conference, I gained new understandings, formulated new questions, expanded my network of connection, and feel empowered to dive deeper!

Benoit Azagoh-Kouadio, MA

The greatest thing that I gained from this experience was the opportunity to connect with like-minded and similarly passionate people who care about "enlivening the soil" and honoring the fact that "in nature everything is interconnected". I felt really blessed to be a part of the gathering and to represent both my farm and a new generation of conscious stewards charged with taking on the great work of ecological agriculture. I look forward to maintaining the relationships and continued opportunities to learn, collaborate and connect with the many wonderful people I am grateful to have met.
