Peer Review Quality System for Biodynamic Advisors

The Peer Review Quality System aims to create transparency and a common basis for qualitative advisory work in biodynamics. We want to jointly form a network of national and international advisers who wish to strengthen and further develop the biodynamic movement. The advisers commit to the jointly agreed principles of the biodynamic advisory services by signing a charter. A Quality Development Review with two colleagues takes place upon entry to the quality system and every three years thereafter, in order to guarantee and further develop the quality of the biodynamic advisory service and ensure the creation of transparency and trust. Quality assurance and quality development will be supported by the advisers' participation in regular reflection, evaluation and professional development.

Current: Implementation of the quality system for biodynamic advisory services.
Project by the Section for Agriculture and Demeter International

The Section for Agriculture at the Goetheanum wishes to support the development of biodynamic projects by acting as a coordination and network body. Since many years the Section for Agriculture has been fostering the international exchange of biodynamic advisors and organizing international meetings. In 2015 a charter for biodynamic advisory services was created within this framework.

In recent years the Section for Agriculture, together with Demeter International and many international advisors, has been working on a quality system for biodynamic advisory services, based on the peer review process. In this process the advisors are examined and evaluated by colleagues from the quality system. This Peer Review Quality System aims to create a common basis for qualitative advisory work in Biodynamics. Together we wish to form a network of national and international advisers who aim to strengthen and further develop the biodynamic movement.
