The North American Biodynamic Apprenticeship Program (NABDAP) is a two-year beginning farmer training program, helping the next generation of farmers develop the skills and knowledge they need to build successful organic and biodynamic farms.
Hundreds of farmers, gardeners, educators, and food lovers gather every other year for the North American Biodynamic Conference. Experience dynamic keynote presentations, information and practical workshops from leading farmers and educators, on-farm field days, community building, exhibitors, festive music, film screenings, and locally sourced biodynamic and organic foods.
Biodynamics has a long history (since 1941) as one of the preeminent publications on biodynamic farming and gardening in the world. A benefit of membership in the Biodynamic Association, each issue provides a thoughtful collection of articles centered on a theme such as animals, farming for health, composting, or pollinators.
Online access for the most recent four issues, plus supplementary materials, is available to BDA members.
Join our vibrant community of biodynamic farmers and gardeners and enjoy immediate access.
