What is Lunar Agriculture Calendar

Early agricultural societies were deeply connected to nature and its cycles. Our ancestors; early farmers observed the changing seasons, tides, and celestial events, including the phases of the Moon. They had the wisdom that certain activities, such as planting and harvesting, seemed to yield better results when timed with lunar phases. Passed down through generations, these practices became cultural traditions that guided planting, harvesting, and other agricultural tasks based on the Moon's phases.

Despite the lack of scientific evidence, lunar gardening serves as a reminder of the deep connection between humans and the natural world, where the Moon's rhythms and the earth's cycles have intertwined for centuries. In modern times, lunar gardening continues to intrigue farmers, gardeners, and enthusiasts who appreciate its historical significance and alternative approach to agriculture.

Gardening by the Moon is a 29-day cycle and it is based on the belief that the phases of the Moon influence soil moisture, plant growth, and overall plant health through its gravitational pull.
