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.
The "Farm Conversion Service" is a collective effort from a small network of real farmers, offering practical advice through visits to your farm as well as through seminars dealing with nuts and bolts biodynamic agriculture, rather than armchair imaginations.
