The Biodynamic Demeter Alliance brings together two of the most established biodynamic organizations in the US – the Biodynamic Association (established in 1947) and Demeter USA (established in 1982) into one cohesive organization. The Alliance connects our nation’s diverse Biodynamic community within a vibrant and progressive organization to serve as a leader in the regenerative agriculture movement and the broader food system. The Alliance is comprised of three spheres: Cultural (providing technical assistance and education and facilitating research), Rights or Certification (holding the integrity of Biodynamic Demeter practices through certification), and Economics (building the market for Biodynamic products and connecting with businesses to increase demand for Biodynamic products). All three spheres are woven together to strengthen the whole toward a rich and mutually-supportive ecosystem.

The Carbon Removal Alliance unites the innovators working to build the next trillion-dollar industry. Together, we work to advance policies that support a diverse set of permanent carbon removal technologies. Our goal is to catalyze innovation, create high-quality jobs, drive economic development, and ensure that we achieve our climate goals. The science is clear: to avoid the worst impact of climate change, it won’t be enough to just reduce emissions.
