Biodynamics Council

New Marketing Team for BDNZ

We’re stoked to introduce our newest team members! Jodi and Jayne are coming on board to replace Laura and take Biodynamics New Zealand forward into 2024 which includes our momentous 100-Year Anniversary Celebrations.

Jodi van der Vliet – Marketing and Content Creation

Jodi joins us with a background in sustainability and ethical marketing, previously working for Fairtrade Australia & New Zealand as their Marketing & Digital Communications Advisor. During her time at Fairtrade Jodi traveled to Rishikesh, India to complete her 200 hour yoga teacher training certification. The yogic philosophy and teachings underpin Jodi’s approach to life and her work.

Jodi’s most recent role as Marketing Director for market research agency Kantar largely focused on sustainability. A highlight of Jodi’s time at Kantar was developing and launching the Better Futures report in partnership with the Sustainable Business Council for three consecutive years. Jodi is excited to expand her knowledge in Biodynamics and apply the teachings to her own semi-rural garden in Waihi, where she lives with her husband and their 1 year old daughter Sophia.

Jayne Craig – Social Media and 100-Years Coordinator

Jayne comes to us fresh from her previous role, working for an international coaching company, where she oversaw both the copy writing for social media and client campaigns, as well as supporting two international coaching programs to ensure client success.

Jayne has a background in Permaculture Design, as well as Naturopathy and Herbal Medicine.  She lives in the beautiful Hawkes Bay, where she lives with her family and has a thriving garden growing a variety of fruit trees and medicinal herbs on what was the original Weleda grounds; and is looking forward to learning from  and connecting with the biodynamic community.
