Beginners Guide to Working with a Planting Calendar

The following video was created to provide an introduction to working with a planting calendar referencing the cycles of the Moon as it passes across the zodiac belt.  Each zodiac constellation is associated with a specific element of either fire, water, earth and air, which translates into four plant groups of fire/fruit, earth/root, air/flower and water/leaf.  Learn how to work with the colour coding in our calendar and apply it to planting and harvesting to enhance your food vitality.
