development of biodynamic farmers, farms and farming practice
• To co-ordinate efforts of and cultivate co-operation amongst
biodynamic farmers and the community
• To encourage opportunities for meeting, sharing, learning and
training, both locally and internationally
• To represent and protect the interests of biodynamic agriculture
• To enable members and others to connect to and serve the
spiritual impulse behind Biodynamic Agriculture
The BDAASA board is made up of 5 members:

An initiative of BDAASA is the Biodynamic Apprenticeship Training Programme which is headed by Helen van Zyl with administrator Sue-ann Wilson and fund raiser Mada Morkel.
