Celebrate Biodynamic Agriculture

We’re excited to announce that the next Biodynamic Conference will be held November 8-12, 2023 at the beautiful Westin hotel near Boulder, Colorado, and will serve to launch the US celebration of Biodynamic Agriculture’s 100th anniversary throughout 2024. Please plan to join us as we host our first conference as the Biodynamic Demeter Alliance, with inspiring speakers, workshops, hands-on opportunities, tastings, exhibits, community-building opportunities, and so much more — all showcasing the interrelated cultural, certification, and marketplace aspects that encompass Biodynamic agriculture in the US today.

Announcing 2023's 

Keynote Speakers

Liz Carlisle
Author, Agroecologist, Assistant Professor of Environmental Studies
UC Santa Barbara

"From Hawai’i to New York, Montana to Puerto Rico, young farmers and scientists of color were reviving ancestral regenerative farming traditions in a self-conscious effort to respond to climate change and racial injustice in tandem. These farmers and scientists understood regenerative agriculture not as a menu of discrete, isolated practices from which one could pick and choose and then tally up into a sustainability score. Rather they saw regenerative agriculture as their ancestors had – as a way of life."
