Biodynamic Association - www.biodynamic.org.uk
The 'Biodynamic Agricultural Association' now simplified to the BA, was founded in Great Britain in 1929 predating the Soil Association. It promotes biodynamic farming, gardening and forestry and supports its members and licensees through a network of advisers, its journal 'Star & Furrow', a news-sheet, conferences, seminars and workshops. It also certifies biodynamic farms, food producers and products identified by the Demeter symbol and in the case of Organic production by the words GB Organic Certification UK6. It is Seagreens®' certification partner for the UK, Europe amnd the USA. Biodynamic agriculture seeks to improve the nutritional value of food and the sustainability of land through a uniquely holistic and spiritual understanding of nature and the role of human husbandry. The Association has its roots in and remains a member of the broader worldwide Anthroposophical movement. Membership is open to everyone interested in working with, developing and learning about biodynamics. Members receive a quarterly newsletter and the bi-annual Star & Furrow, a highly informative, readable and beautifully presented full colour magazine. Patrick Holden, ex-Chairman of the Soil Association, in 2010 offered his services as Patron and a Director of the Biodynamic Association.

As the day goes on, your attention and heart will become so alive with the presence of these beautiful beings, feeling as they do, playing in the field, smelling what they smell, understanding their jokes and complaints and enjoyments - the invisible connection with the herd begins...

Traditional foods. Unprocessed foods. Fermented foods. Natural, wild foods. Foods that have not been turned into something our great grandparents would call confectionary! It has been a long time coming but our friend Philip Ridley has finally managed to create the UK WAPF website and by sheer determination, courage, and tenacity, has kept the movement alive in the UK with a wide group of supporters and interested parties, including Seagreens and the Seaweed Health Foundation.
