Membership & Administration Coordinator
January 13, 2014
Biodynamics is a spiritual-ethical-ecological approach to agriculture, food production and nutrition, initiated in the early 1920s based on the spiritual insights and practical suggestions of the Austrian writer, educator and social activist Dr. Rudolf Steiner (1861-1925). Today, the biodynamic movement encompasses thousands of successful gardens, farms, vineyards and agricultural operations of all kinds and sizes on all continents.
The Biodynamic Association (BDA) is an association of individuals and groups in North America who are committed to the transformation of the whole food system, from farm to table, and who draw inspiration from the insights of Rudolf Steiner. Founded in 1938, the Biodynamic Association is considered to be the oldest alternative agriculture organization in North America.
