The Maria Thun Biodynamic Almanac 2020

The 2020 Maria Thun Biodynamic Almanac: North American Edition, with Eastern Standard Time dates and times, is now in its 58th year of helping biodynamic farmers and gardeners get the most out of their farms and gardens.

This useful guide shows the optimum days for sowing, pruning, and harvesting various plants and crops, as well as working with bees. It includes Thun's unique insights, which go above and beyond the standard information presented in some other lunar calendars. It is presented in colour with clear symbols and explanations.

The almanac includes a pullout wallchart that can be pinned up in a barn, workshop or garage as a handy quick reference.

  • Biodynamics is a holistic, ecological, and ethical approach to gardening and farming
  • The original, and still the best biodynamic almanac for nearly sixty years
  • Lifetime sales of more than 100,000 copies in English
  • The perennially popular guide to sowing, planting and harvesting, created by biodynamic pioneer Maria Thun is shown with dates and times for use in North America
  • Used by both backyard gardeners and professional farmers
