The famous BioDynamic Gardening Planting Guide & Calendar. In depth essays and planting guides for the home gardener or professional who wants to work with the rhythms of nature. This Calendar has many aspects: a basic introduction to astronomy, a simple ephemeris, a planting guide, a star map, aid for following the movement of the planets in the night sky, and articles by ten different authors.
All of these attempt to provide a true picture of the world outside us and ideas to assist in developing a healthy relation to that world. Writing in her introduction to this year's calendar, Sherry Wildfeuer notes: "All through childhood we receive what we need and learn to be grateful. As adolescents we strive for "independence," trying to take greater responsibility for ourselves while hopefully developing capacities for sound judgment. In adulthood we recognize that independence is largely an illusion, as we work to provide for others' needs and live our lives through the work of others. A simple exercise of "reverse engineering" even the most basic objects from daily life (a spoon, a pillow case…) will reveal the vast web of natural resources, human inventiveness and labor that supports us. "Humanity as a whole has enthusiastically embraced its adolescent phase.
This Calendar is dedicated to supporting a mature appreciation of the value of what we have been given on earth, combined with a true sense of individual responsibility. I hope that the practical use of the planting calendar will enhance your awareness that our earthly existence is indeed woven into the whole surrounding universe. Ultimately it is our awe and reverence for this greater reality that will create the right mood for healthy thoughts and actions."
As its name suggests, the Calendar offers ways to bring our cultivated plants into a harmonious relation to the Moon, planets and stars through our understanding and timely activity. Its real value comes through the meaning it has for you, as readers and gardeners. Together we are working to enhance the meaning of life and bring the evolution of the Earth forward. This popular calendar can be very hard to find.
