In biodynamics, there are two important aspects that will help the soil health of your garden or vineyard:

  • The importance of maintaining soil fertility
  • The energy force – the relationship between the growing environment and the cosmos

This is expressed in the phases of the moon, the planets and the stars:

  • Waxing & waning of the moon
  • Ascending & descending of the moon
  • Moon & planets in relation to star constellations

We track these cycles using Brian Keats’ Antipodean Astro Calendar, as well as going outside and gazing at the night sky.
