Biodynamic Farmer Foundation Year
Get to know biodynamics from the inside-out
The Biodynamic Farmer Foundation Year is a hands-on, holistic approach to farmer education.
Delve deeply into the practice of biodynamics with individualized support from an experienced biodynamic mentor farmer.
Apprentice on an established biodynamic mentor farm or implement biodynamics on the farm you manage.
Work with a cohesive learning curriculum of short readings, experiential exercises, and lively conversation spaces.
This new program builds upon our North American Biodynamic Apprenticeship Program (NABDAP), which began in 2009 and has graduated 37 new biodynamic farmers to date.
"I want to gain the power to nourish in a healthy and sustainable way. I want to work within and heighten my understanding of a biodynamic farm system through a program that enables not only hands-on training, but also educational opportunities."
- Abby, NABDAP apprentice
