Planting by the Stars - Aims
Considera aims to collect and collate results
from farmers and gardeners around the world who have taken note of
the time at which they have planted their crops and have also taken
note of the results of these plantings. (NB - although this site, between
its inception and execution, has become
increasingly focused upon Biodynamic agriculture, results from any
grower - aligned or independent - are welcomed and indeed solicited
Considera will then look for correspondences between these results and
the position of the Sun, Moon, planets and stars at the time of making
By doing this it is intended to clarify whether there really are correspondences,
what these correspondences are, and to give guidance for those who wish
to make use of these correspondences for their future farming and gardening.
If all goes well.... no .... when all is going well,
we will be able to publish our increasingly confident conclusions
so that anyone can use the emerging patterns to enhance their crops.
Another aim is to encourage you to consider whether your eco-system does
extend up to the stars, and to take thoughtful note and action on that
Until we are confident that we have identified the relevant patterns,
we suggest that you follow your favourite planting
We will be basing our initial recommendations on the work of Maria
Thun, Nick Kollerstrom and Brian
Keats (Ext link).
We have suggested dates for many years, crop type, and hemisphere, at which
time you are invited to make two sets of otherwise similar-as-you-can
plantings for the different outcomes to be obvious. In this way
we hope to encourage you to join in and keep in the research. Until I hear that this is being useful I'm not going to prepare any more for the present.
