The Biodynamic Agricultural College came out of a long history of biodynamic agriculture education at Emerson College in cooperation with the Biodynamic Association in the UK. It became independent in 2010 and is a limited company with charitable status.
The stated aims of the college are: to provide education in biodynamic agriculture.
At the moment the primary focus of the college is a distance learning course called Biodynamic Principles and Practice, which makes education in biodynamic agriculture available to students worldwide and at the same time offers support to an international culture of learning and researching biodynamic agriculture.
