'I like to use biodynamic produce in my restaurants but high demand makes it difficult to source. More biodynamic farms and gardens are urgently needed and I like the idea of protecting them in a Trust. That's why I think the Biodynamic Land Fund is such a good idea.'
The Fund is a part of a registered charity and its aim is to enable land to be purchased and held in trust, ensuring that it is reserved for biodynamic farming and kept in perpetuity for future generations. Such land would be leased on favourable terms to a cooperative or a group, qualified to work the land biodynamically.
The fund is founded on the well known banking principle that many small amounts of money soon add up to a large amount.
You are invited to make a small monthly contribution to the Fund, knowing that when combined with many similar contributions, it will accumulate over time to a sum sufficient to purchase farms and small holdings.
Anyone donating £120 during the first year will become a Founding Member.
Our goal is 500 Founding Members.

Modern farming techniques erode the quality of our soil, water, landscape and food. Organic farming offers us an approach that reduces much of these debilitating effects. Biodynamic farming is an holisitic approach to the farm organism that seeks to cultivate the land with reverence using biodynamic preparations and practices. It encapsulates many of the notions of sustainability, compassion and eco-diversity that are thankfully becoming part of our society's consciousness today. Our soil and our soul demand that we put into practice an approach to agricultural similar to that enshrined in biodynamics before both are exhausted.
