By the Unification Nucleus Group: As we begin the new year, we are excited to be witnessing and participating in the cocreation of a new entity that has been long in the making—97 years after Rudolf Steiner gave the Agriculture Course in Koberwitz, 83 years after the founding of the Biodynamic Association in the U.S., and 36 years after the founding of Demeter USA and the Josephine Porter Institute.

Through the dramatic and unexpected transformation of this wildfire, I have come to the poignant realization that it is time for me to transition out of leadership of the Biodynamic Association.
