About the Host and B-D Calendars

This Journal of experiences with the Biodynamic Calendar is brought to you by WordPress and Zachary Domike.  I am a member of the Biodynamic Farming Association of New Zealand. 

I am a gardener, architect and resident of the South Island of New Zealand.   I am also active in Transition Town movement, preparing for a diminished energy future.

Just starting in the world of blogs, so I hope to see lots of comments and info, and I will do my part.  I signed on originally with my first blog name, tirecycling, about recycling auto tires in garden use.  If a tyre is washed well then it is a clean and economical landscape material – and I  have been able to confirm that tyres will be accepted by sevearl of the NZ biodynamic certification agencies.  That was published in the Letters of the OrganicNZ magazine,  May/June 2009.

You can write me at my gmail account, yogazeal – – –  I am reviewing the local weather records to see if the summer rain rhythm carries forward from previous years – which would be easy if the handwriting was readable.  You may have a better record to compare to your previous years’ BD Calendars.

I would be delighted to compare B-D Calendars as prepared by people around the world, north and south of the equator.  These are my Notes for July and August travel, listing the time in UTC, Universal Time –
