Our Cause

"The healthy social life is found
When in the mirror of each human soul
The whole community is shaped,
And when in the community
Lives the strength of each human soul."

Rudolf Steiner

Biodynamics was founded on three ideals expressing three social spheres: equality in our human to human relationships, community empowerment, and government policy; freedom in our individual and cultural expression, spirituality, and initiative; and cooperation in our economic activities, allowing everyone’s needs to be met. Our purpose is to practice what we preach.

Environmental Causes

  • We are a sponsor of the Biodynamic Association, which places an emphasis on providing education for farmers and also supports BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, People of Color) farmer education. 

  • We are a member of the California Certified Organic Farm Certification (CCOF), a nonprofit that advocates for organic policies, supporting growth of organic through education and grants, and provides organic certifications.

  • We are certified by Real Organic Project - a grassroots, farmer-led movement created to distinguish soil-grown and pasture-raised products under USDA organic.

  • We support the Climate Collaborative - a group of manufacturers, retailers, distributors, brokers, suppliers, and other concerned businesses from the natural foods industry who are working collaboratively to take bold action to reduce our carbon footprint and reverse climate change.

Since 2001, they have helped hundreds transition from homelessness to housing, and from crisis to community.

  • We support Meals on Wheels, which is guided by a single goal: support our vulnerable senior neighbors to extend their independence and health as they age, and designed specifically to meet their nutritional and social needs.

  • We support Sprouts Cooking Club, launched in the Bay Area with the mission to teach children from all socioeconomic backgrounds the importance of healthy, nutritional foods through hands-on cooking along side real chefs, with real ingredients, in real restaurants.

  • We support Transcendence Theater, a local non-profit musical theater company made up of Broadway and national/international touring artists who perform live and outdoors at Jack London State Park. In addition, they run the Transcendence Arts and Values Education Fund, which provides equitable access to arts education and inspires youth to go beyond their limits.
