This original biodynamic sowing and planting calendar shows the optimum days for sowing, pruning and harvesting, and includes a pull-out wall-chart for handy reference. It covers working with bees, the organic treatment of plant and bee diseases, and includes wonderful insights into natural medicine, herbs and the qualities of dew. Maria Thun was a woman of great wisdom whose life's work extended way beyond her important discoveries in the arena of organic farming and gardening. Using her deep intuitive power, she researched the connection between the earth and the healing forces of the cosmos and gave them practical application. She began to issue her famous calendars 52 years ago, and the tradition is now continued by her son, who draws on her methods. A must for organic gardeners and all those who wish to attune to cosmic rhythms.
