    Email:

    The BDAAI was founded in 1985, to promote biodynamic farming and gardening in Ireland. The BDAAI supports farms and gardener’s looking for Demeter certification but it is not its main aim. Demeter certification in Ireland is now under the auspices of the Biodynamic Association UK The BDAAI organises conferences annually, workshop, garden and farm walks during the summer and provides a biannual newsletter. Combined with real world research and open minds the BDAAI aims to bring the practices of biodynamic agriculture to gardens and farms all over Ireland. Biodynamic agriculture and its practices come from a series of lectures  given by Rudolf Steiner in 1924. But the knowledge and systems he spoke of are much older, from a time when man and nature were closely bound. Biodynamics has evolved and grown worldwide since then. Biodynamic Agriculture is a method of farming that recognises the dynamic nature of living systems and the farmers/growers who interact with it. It considers all the factors that influence plants, animals and the surrounding environment.
