The Biodynamic Association was founded in Ireland in 1985, to promote Biodynamic farming and gardening. At that time it also administered the DEMETER symbol, which stopped in 1998.

The BDAAI supports farms and gardener’s looking for DEMETER certification but it is not our main aim. For the DEMETER certification we are now under the umbrella of the U.K. Biodynamic Association.

We organise conferences annually, workshops, garden and farm walks during the summer and provide a biannual newsletter.

We also have an apprentice programme just starting in conjunction with the UK certification. More details below. Contact:

At the heart of association we feel dialogue and exchange of knowledge between all streams of agriculture is the way forward.

Combined with real world research and open minds the BDAAI will bring the practices of biodynamic agriculture to gardens and farms all over Ireland.
