In 1953 the Bio-Dynamic Agricultural Association of Australia (BDAAA) was founded as a training body to aid farmers in developing the skills and techniques to change from conventional to Bio-Dynamic farming.
All members at the Bio-Dynamic Research Institute are bonafide owner/operator farmers, who form a purposeful Guild, which also mentors newly converting farmers by providing support and advice.
Bio-Dynamic farmers develop skills to "culture" the soil. (Hence the original meaning of the word AGRI-CULTURE, or soil-culture). Every aspect of primary production should be based on the understanding of the dynamic interplay of soil life as basis for plant and animal health, and the reciprocal influence thereof.
Due to the workings of this dynamic principle at the Bio-Dynamic Research Institute, plant and soil become effective mediators of quality food - essential for man and animal.
