Sanandi is rooted in a land that has been cultivated with care and dedication for more than sixteen
years under the principles and tenets of the agro-ecology. At its center lies caring for the fertility of the land and for the people that cultivate it. All of our efforts are focused on maintaining a harmonious biological unit capable of nurturing the network of organisms that inhabit it; we are thus able to prepare and provide products with living qualities that promote good health. Herein lies our hope! With the principles based in biodynamic farming we strive to further enhance the quality of our plants and of the organisms that symbiotically coexist in our land. All of the biodynamic preparations are cultivated in our farm and strewn in our fields on a regular basis in order to maintain a healthy, living, and biodiverse soil.
We believe that humanity’s health depends on the health of the land and that the land’s resilience depends on humanity’s consciousness and state of health. We are convinced that natural laws, when manipulated, inevitably have pathological consequences.
We respect all forms of life. We consider biodiversity to be fundamental for the well-being of all plant and animal life. We value organic foods made with processes that are respectful of the environment and we promote the use of medicinal plants that can improve the well-being of all living organisms.
Only if the environment is harmonious — and healthy — can it provide all living beings the backdrop that they need to manifest their true potential. We believe in an integrative medicine, based on healthy habits, biologically cultivated foods, methods of healing that are respectful, and in responsible humans that actively participate — both mentally and emotionally — in improving their own health.
The future of public health depends greatly on the union of small economically-sustainable communities, founded with respectful agricultural principles. We actively support the concept of Economy for the Common Good, which emphasizes the values of human dignity, ecological balance, solidarity, and economic sustainability.
Sanandi is fully committed to providing products that:
- Have a true purpose: made for your wellbeing!
- Are respectfully traded, sustainable, honest, and all-natural.
- Handcrafted at our farm using the highest USP and German pharmacopoeia standards.
- Contain Organic, Wildcrafted, & Biodynamic ingredients whenever possible.
- Selecting partners that adhere to our philosophy of using all natural farming methods.
- Free of chemicals, toxic contaminants, and harmful ingredients.
Sanandi’s mindset is based in part on the principles and tenets of The Economy for the Common Good, a model developed by Christian Felber. Its main goal is to replace competitiveness and a profit-driven mentality with collaboration and the continuous contribution to the common good. From this paradigm-shifting perspective, instead of a typical balance sheet, a “common good balance sheet” is used allowing us to measure the extent to which we abide by key core values: human dignity, social justice, ecological sustainability, solidarity, and economic sustainability.
Our focus is to ensure that what we do has a positive impact on our planet and on our communities, every step of the way.
Sanandi believes in fairness, in respecting nature and all living organisms, in helping those around us and those that we come into contact with, and in working as part of the community we are all a part of and of which we all depend. We are all interconnected and interrelated.
At Sanandi, our philosophy is based on a single premise: that Nature is alive. It is a sentient organism and therefore it feels. At its heart is Fertility, which is the most creative act in Nature and it has only one purpose: to nourish, sustain, and create balance in order to foster evolution.
The Biological agriculture we practice is based on cultivating a relationship of values and meaning with Nature. Cultivating means culture. Agri-Culture is for us the Art that feeds the web of life, closes the cycle of production and consumption, and finally helps maintain and promote Ecological Integrity.
In our lab we concentrate the healing properties of the medicinal plants in tinctures, fermentations,functional honeys, oils and remedies based on anthroposophic standards.
