Some cosmic influences are well understood in agriculture. The sun and its annual rhythm clearly set the pattern for the overwhelming majority of agricultural systems.
This unit explores all of the cosmic aspects which may influence different aspects of the farm organism. This includes practical observation of the stars and planets as well as a qualitative understanding of how human relationships to the stars and consideration of how the cosmos may affect life in farming beyond the annual relationship with the sun. Students will be encouraged to combine their own practical observations with understanding of different cosmic rhythms so that they can begin to form their own relationship with the subject.
