For BD practitioners to be able to learn more about biodynamic agriculture, apply BD preparations consistently to their garden or farm, as well as to support JPI, we have created an "Associative Contract" (or as Rudolf Steiner referred to in his three fold social order as the associative relationship). Our "Associative Contract" is a sustainable idea which is borrowed from the economic concept, Community Supported Agriculture (CSA). Traditionally, the CSA concept encourages urban and rural people to share responsibility for where and how their food is produced. The CSA is a partnership between agricultural producers and consumers - a way to financially support an agricultural organization. You become a participant not just a consumer. JPI has adopted this concept: any biodynamic practitioner may contract to support the yearly work of JPI, by paying a corresponding fee at the beginning of the season based on an acreage level appropriate to his or her situation, and in turn JPI agrees to support the health of the plants you grow and the health of the planet by providing biodynamic preparations, and farm/garden advisory service.
What do I receive?
JPI will provide annual consultation service.
JPI will send the biodynamic preparations in two priority mail shipments; one shipment in the SPRING and one shipment in the FALL for your farming or gardening needs. If radiation of US mail is implemented, shipment will be by Federal Express. In this case there will be additional shipping charges.
20% discount per any additional preparations purchased.
Preparations include; Two Sets of the BD Compost Preparations 502-507, and Two units each of BD #500, BD #501, BD #508, and BC.
