Yes, Lawrence,

The situation in biodynamics is one where the most innovative
paractitioners at the cutting edge of the art are threatened with censure
and objection to their use of the term biodynamic. And the objection is
coming from a segment of the biodynamic community that with the full
history of 75 years behind them currently has around 50 certified growers
in North America. Is that stodgy and conservative or what?

This is not about protecting biodynamics from those who would water it
down. Just the opposite.

Best,
Hugh Lovel
