Did you know? Learn and Grow is shifting to a Reading Circle!

The Learn and Grow with BDA Members series was developed as a skill-share space for BDA members to gather, share knowledge, and build community through the beginning questions and projects of the growing season. After 8 wonderful sessions, and feedback from you, we will now be offering the Learn and Grow space as a community Reading Circle-- Share, read, and discuss; books, lectures, and articles in Biodynamics, Ecology, and Anthroposophy. Let's continue to Learn and Grow together!

Co-hosted by Raphael Guzman and Tonya Taylor 


Sessions are offered biweekly on Tuesdays, 

from 1-1:50 pm PT/ 4-4:50 pm ET


These sessions are open to all current members of the Biodynamic Association.
Note: You will need to be signed in to your online account in order to complete your registration.
If you're not yet a member, you can join today for as little as $5 and get immediate access to register.
