Biodynamic Association of Northern California


Seek the truly practical, material life--

but seek in such a way that it does not numb you to the spirit that works within it.

Seek the spirit--

but not out of spiritual lust or spiritual egoism; seek it rather because you wish to become selfless in the practical life of the material world.

Keep to the ancient principle: 'Spirit never without matter, matter never without Spirit', in such a way as you say: We will do everything material in the light of spirit, and let us seek the light of the spirit in such a way that it enkindles warmth in us for our practical deeds.

                                                                                               -Rudolf Steiner, 1919

Seasonal Meetings

We are a member-run organization that aims to promote the biodynamic approach to farming and gardening.

Through BDANC we have the opportunity to:

  • gather a dynamic interchange of people from many arenas of biodynamics
  • spread our collective knowledge, learn from each other and grow together through study
  • get reports of activities in the larger biodynamic and farming community
  • learn about the preps by making them together
  • ensure availability of the preps to the community
  • experience other farms and gardens
  • renew our spiritual intentions and our commitment to each other


We accomplish our goals through:

  • seasonal quarterly meetings (winter, spring, summer, fall)
  • a quarterly mailed newsletter
  • a membership mailing and emailing list for an e-newsletter
  • making and selling the Biodynamic preparations
  • meeting expenses with income from membership dues and preparations

February 2016 Italian Biodynamic Conference

Prince Charles recently said we are in a 'crisis of perception' in our relation to nature and farming. He draws from the inspiration given by Weleda's founder and the forefather of biodynamic farming Rudolf Steiner and said 'we can only marvel at the prescience of Steiner's thinking, who recognised the interconnectedness of soil fertility and the vital health of plants, animals and people.'

BDANC's Mission

The Biodynamic Association of Northern California seeks to inspire social, environmental and spiritual renewal through the cultivation of the art and science of biodynamic agriculture.
