A later advocate, who developed a gardener's lunar calendar, was Maria Thun, a German farmer who believed that the energy of plants can be affected by the energy of the moon, stars and planets.

Harvest at Comarca La Matilde ” La Matilde, however, is an ambitious sustainable project that doesn’t just touch on wine.

It also appears to demonstrate disagreement within the regulatory body of its own safety assessments. (Saturday March 18th, 2017 — Care2.com - USA)
