Gardening by the Moon
Everything you need to know to grow more food using the moon's cycles!
For centuries people used the moon's cycles to maximize their harvest and increase their chance of success when planting their gardens. They worshiped the moon, and our menstrual cycles were attuned it. It controls the ocean tides, and has mystical allure that has fascinated mankind for millennia. Today, we live our lives by the glowing light of screens and artificial light at night and seldom do we even know what phase the moon is in at any given time.
During a time in society when we can simply drive to the grocery store to pick up any food that we could ever want or need, this attunement to the moon's cycles for crop production has all but been forgotten. My goal is to help you rediscover the magic of the moon's energy, and teach you how it affects everything from the success of germination to our productivity, moods, and how to find the best times to plant for hardiness or beauty.
In this course, you will learn:
- How the moon's cycle affect germination and plant growth
- When to pull weeds and destroy pests to ensure they stay away
- How the zodiac can affect the beauty, hardiness and fertility of your plants
- How the moon cycles can affect all areas of our life and how to enhance our creativity and productivity by observing, and working with, these cycles
I'm Jenine Kozey, a knitting, woodworking physicist who has a passion for edible and medicinal plants and all things to do with nature and the outdoors! I'm a bit of a Jack-of-all-trades having made everything from homemade cosmetics to tasty foraged meals and my own off-grid cabin. I'm notorious for trying new things, making mistakes, and helping others learn from them! I spend most of my life outdoors on my farm with my husband, four boys and my chickens. I love adventure, travel and helping others to heal and grow.
A perpetual learner and avid reader, I take numerous courses each year to hone my expertise. Most recently, I am enrolled in Advanced Herbalism with the Herbal Academy of New England as well as the Vitalist Herbal Practitioner Course through Evolutionary Herbalism. I have completed my Permaculture Design Certificate Course, Earthworks Course, Reading the Landscape Course and Plant Spirit Medicine Course among many others.
I teach the permaculture design certificate course, host various plants walks and teach workshops on rainwater harvesting, raising chickens, preserving food, gardening by the moon, self-healing seminars, and many other topics (both online and in-person).
In 2019 my life took a crazy, life-altering turn when I was diagnosed with a sarcoma that ate through my breastbone and caused my ribs to dislocate. I learned that year to ask for help, speak my mind and be true to who I was. I slowed down, simplified my life even further and gained a clarity of purpose that few people get to experience. This included narrowing down my life path to helping others find their passion and live the life they truly want. Luckily, I was able to shrink the sarcoma on my own to make it operable, and today I am cancer-free! Woohoo!
I appreciate each and every enrollment I receive as it helps me to learn what gaps I have in my understanding, and provides me the opportunity to meet wonderful, like-minded souls. If you feel like taking my courses is of benefit to you, I would love to meet you and have you on the journey!
All the best!
