Biodynamic Demeter Alliance Updates
The Biodynamic Demeter Alliance is a newly formed organization focused on biodynamic agriculture and food systems in the United States. The organization is the result of a thoughtful unification and expansion process involving the two strongest and most visible organizations within the movement: the Biodynamic Association (BDA) and Demeter USA. The combined organization offers a cohesive, networked association that can facilitate the practical growth and maturation needed to implement systemic change in the US food system and marketplace at large.
The Alliance works to advance the knowledge and growth of biodynamic practices, principles, research, markets, and certification in support of healthier landscapes, farms, and people, and improved economic, spiritual, and social wellbeing. By incorporating diversity, equity, and inclusion practices as keystones, the Alliance works alongside all farmers, food entrepreneurs, and enthusiasts that share the goal of growing resilient, equitable, inclusive, and just food economies and systems.
- We are currently seeking our first-ever Executive Director. See the position announcement here.
- The bylaws of the Biodynamic Demeter Alliance were recently approved, and the BDA and Demeter boards are working on articles of merger, with the hope for the new organization to exist in the beginning of the new year.
