The Biodynamic Land Trust (BDLT) exists to secure land for biodynamic farming, gardening and food growing in the long term. We do this through partnerships, community involvement and shares.
The BDLT is a charitable community benefit society. Members join by investing in withdrawable, non-profit shares.
Our aim is to secure agricultural land to hold in trust in perpetuity for affordable access for biodynamic farmers and agriculture, countryside conservation and for community connected, sustainable farming.
We have used a variety of mechanisms to secure land in Sussex, Devon, Worcestershire, Gloucestershire and Scotland. In 2013, the BDLT set up a separate social business called Ecodynamic Community Benefit Society, which aims to invest in develop and run renewable energy generation projects and to re-invest surplus in biodynamic and sustainable farming.
