Biodynamic Agricultural Association
(Redirected from Biodynamic Association)Jump to navigation Jump to search
"The Biodynamic Agricultural Association was founded in Great Britain in 1929 to promote biodynamic farming and gardening. It also administers the Demeter symbol and gives support through a network of advisers, the journal Star and Furrow, a news-sheet, conferences, seminars and workshops.
"The Association's main objectives are to foster and promote the agricultural impulse started by Rudolf Steiner in 1924 (the date of his course of lectures on agriculture) and to help and support those wishing to put into practice the bio-dynamic method. " 
Sebastian Parsons will now take on the role of Chief Executive after the retirement of Timothy Brink who has held the post since 2010.
