We loan because...
We want to support Biodynamic Agriculture. In order to survive, farmers are forced to think in terms of short term solutions... we want to encourage them to think in the longest terms possible, to view their work as a sacred act and the farm as a living organism whose health is vital to us all.

About us
Our team will ideally grow to include everyone already involved in the Biodynamic movement (Demeter, BDA, etc) as well as those in sister movements (CSA, Permaculture, etc). We encourage all team members to be on the lookout for new Biodynamic (and related) initiatives, and to notify the administrators of this team. We hope that this team will serve to encourage farmers, microlending institutions, and the whole Kiva community to set their bar as high as possible in terms of producing the healthiest produce with the most beneficial impact on the planet.

We also hope to encourage others to set up teams for similarly-inspired activities in other fields (Waldorf Steiner Schools, Transition Town businesses, etc)
