Coronavirus Update: The Biodynamic Association Office remains open for enquiries, book & prep orders, help and advice, albeit with reduced staffing, due to home working where possible. So please be aware that webshop orders may take a few days longer to reach you than normal.
As a biodynamic community dedicated to health and healing for Earth and humanity, we feel it is more important than ever that we continue to provide meaningful ways to connect across distance, as we navigate these challenging times together.
Biodynamic (Demeter) & Organic Certification Services Update - all physical inspections are postponed until safe, certification status and certificates for 2020 will remain valid, interim self-assessment/remote inspections for some licensees may occur. See latest information and other support we can give here.
If you do have to self-isolate, why not take the opportunity to start a biodynamic home garden. Get all the online help and advice you need to get started by joining our Biodynamic Gardening Club (see here). Or for the latest advice for allotment holders (see here).
NEW! Check out our Biodynamic Gardening Club's free box set of five video shorts giving a compete introduction on how you can easily get started on mindful biodynamic gardening and growing at home (see here).
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.
Today 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).
Biodynamics is the complete holistic package. 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).

Over 80% of our producers sell direct to the customer, and most of our farmers sell locally, and through farmers’ markets (including some London ones). That’s why we’re delighted to connect with the Open Food Network, a new not for profit initiative dedicated to building a stronger fairer food system, and local economies.
