Biodynamics is the world's oldest system of organic growing. An inspirational global movement that promotes a uniquely holistic approach to organic agriculture, gardening, food and health. The term 'organic farming' was first invented to describe biodynamic methods.
Scientists are discovering that biodynamics is the most effective organic system for carbon storage to tackle climate change (see here) and the best for soil restoration to heal our planet (see here).
Our roots are ecological, ethical, social and spiritual. Our aim is to regenerate the health and vitality of our soils; restore the integrity of our food; and promote the health and wholeness of our communities. For us agriculture is a sacred endeavour, and the foundation for all our well-being. Join us today (click here).
- We're Hiring - To reflect rising interest in biodynamics and regenerative farming, we're recruiting a part-time General Manager (click here) to assist our Chief Executive, and a full-time Communications and Business Support Officer (here) to continue our growth. Apply by 10th May.
- Brexit Guidance - The new EU trade agreement recognises the UK as equivalent for organics until 31 Dec 2023. Our Certification Team's special webpage has info on all the other Brexit changes required to labelling and import/export systems since 1st Jan 2021.
