What Is Biodynamics?

Biodynamics is a spiritual-ethical-ecological approach to agriculture, food production and nutrition. Biodynamics was first developed 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), whose philosophy is called “anthroposophy.” Today, the biodynamic movement encompasses thousands of successful gardens, farms, vineyards and agricultural operations of all kinds and sizes on all continents, in a wide variety of ecological and economic settings.

Who We Are

The Biodynamic Association (BDA) is an association of individuals and organizations in North America who are committed to the transformation of the whole food system, from farm to table, and who draw inspiration from the spiritual-scientific insights of Rudolf Steiner.

From this understanding, a particular form of organic farming has been developed that continues to grow and evolve around the world. Find out more….

    Hello, Would you please provide me the contact information for Sarah Weber? A year or two ago, she wrote an article for your website which was about biodynamic initiatives in Mexico. I live in Mexico (a small town an hour or so south of Mexico City) and would like to find out if I can obtain biodynamic preparations here. Thank you, John Stern
