In this post I discuss how traditional farmers still observe and use the ancient Earth and Moon energies when planting and growing their crops, shunning the use of artificial chemical fertilisers in favour of a completely natural approach.
High above the historic town of Pisac, located in Peru’s Sacred Valley, potato farmer Don Joseph plants and tends his field by hand. Some 3,500 meters above sea level, Don Joseph grows several different types of hardy altitude-tolerant potato that we have never come across in the West. These potatoes form the staple of many Peruvian diets.
A farmer all his life, Don Joseph only uses traditional methods that harmonise with Earth and Moon energies when farming. He told me that for root crops such as potatoes he will only ever plant on a waning moon:
via a translator: “With potatoes, I plant when the moon is waning because the Earth energies are returning into Patchamama (Earth Mother). This means the potatoes grow big and there is much to eat. If I were to plant the potatoes when the moon was waxing there would be nothing to eat as all the growth would be above the ground not underneath it. This is because the energies flow out from Patchamama when the moon is waxing”.
Don Joseph also has no interest in using chemical fertilisers that force the crops and ignore the natural energies of the land.
Here in the West, it’s disheartening to note how the mainstream media has been used to virtually brainwash people into using manufactured chemicals and fertilisers to grow crops, whilst at the same time disconnecting us from all the ancient knowledge and wisdom that our ancestors acquired about how to cultivate and grow food whilst staying in harmony with Mother Earth. And as for the ludicrous invention of ‘GMO crops’ ???? – don’t get me started….
