About the event

The ancient tradition of planting by the moon has been practiced for centuries by civilizations around the world. It is based on the idea that the gravitational pull of the moon affects the water in the soil, which in turn affects the growth of plants. 

Multiple mechanisms have been suggested to explain the effect of moonlight on plant growth, including the breakdown of starch by diastases, variations in water absorption during seed imbibition and gaseous exchange, as well as the effect of the moon on the movement of sap in plants. 

Such is the result of a google search. 

A number of TTT members have been interested in finding out more about this practice and Tracey has kindly agreed to come and tell us all about it. Whether you are already a seasoned 'moon gardener' or just beginning to look into the importance of the moon's position: we are sure to be in for a treat - as Tracey shares her endless wisdom in such professional ways. 

I'll be there 12 - 4 if you've got Timebank questions, just pop in and ask ahead. It's always really nice to meet old and new members in person. 

Workshop fee for TTT members is 'hour for hour', i.e. 2 Time credits. For non-members please contribute $ 10-20 on a sliding scale as you can. 

If you want to get your own moon calendar the recommended site is https://www.creativecronies.co.nz. There are many other moon calendars, a quick search on the net will get you just the right one for you. 

My recommendation also is to check out the MaramatakaMāori - The Māori Moon Calendar

Do let us know, i.e. RSVP that you're coming. 

We are looking forward to catching up with you and sharing another beautiful workshop with you.

Barbara & Tracey
