Introductory Field Days

23 March, 2020.

Attention all members of the Biodynamic Agricultural Association of Australia;

We regret to inform you that the upcoming BDAAA Conference has been cancelled.

In response to the COVID-19 (Coronavirus) pandemic, the Biodynamic Agricultural Association of Australia has made the difficult decision to cancel the 2020 Conference.

We apologise for any inconvenience and thank you for your patience and understanding.  We are planning on live streaming some presentations.  Keep checking your email over the coming weeks for more information.  There may be an opportunity for a get-together later in the year, however given the current unpredictable climate this will need to be confirmed in a few months. As we move forward into these uncertain times, we encourage you to take comfort and nourishment in the qualities of our Biodynamic produce and look after each other
