The Section for Agriculture at the Goetheanum

The Section for Agriculture at the Goetheanum is one of currently eleven departments of the School of Spiritual Science based at the Goetheanum in Dornach, Switzerland. The Section for Agriculture contributes to the development of agriculture, out of anthroposophical spiritual science. The main tasks of the Section for Agriculture are to coordinate and give impulses to the worldwide biodynamic agriculture movement. 
Biodynamic agriculture was born in 1924, in a series of lectures given by Rudolf Steiner, known as the "Agriculture Course". Nowadays biodynamic agriculture is practiced worldwide with over 150.000 ha of certified biodynamic land (certified by Demeter). The ideas behind biodynamic agriculture have infused and inspired many related fields such as landscape work, nutrition, social therapy, bee-keeping, wine making and many more. Also new research methods, new economic systems for agriculture and new systems of land ownership (amongst other innovations) have been developed out of the biodynamic movement.
To find out more about biodynamic agriculture, you can navigate our website, read a recommended publication, contact a biodynamic association near you or come along to one of the events from the Section for Agriculture! The Agriculture Conference in early February is a good place to get to know the biodynamic movement.
