Earth spirited and eco-friendly, Alanna Moore’s unique guide to esoteric farming and gardening practices features the art of dowsing and its application to subtle energies, including paramagnetic rocks, that can be harnessed for enhanced plant growth and animal vitality. The author draws on ancient wisdom as well as modern scientific understandings of the amazing ability of magnetism to stimulate life. Her work with paramagnetic antennae – the ‘Towers of Power’- over two decades has produced some impressive results and these are featured in this revised and updated with new photographs 2nd edition.
Stone Age Farming is also published by Lapis Lazuli Light in Taiwan in a Chinese language edition.
Stone Age Farming is available in German language from the German publisher Mobiwell and can be found at www.mobiwell.com/home/stone-age-farming.

“This is a journey into the world of esoteric agriculture, connecting ancient wisdom and environmental practices with the latest knowledge in magnetism and agricultural science. Author Alanna Moore specialises in geomancy and dowsing as applied to eco-agriculture, and she is passionate about permaculture and biodynamics. For Stone Age Farming, Moore has spent the best part of eight years researching in the field and applying and expanding on principles elucidated by Dr Phil Callahan and others. She has studied the ancient Irish Round Towers at first hand and compared them with modern reproductions in South Australia. The towers – “silicon-rich semi-conductors of cosmic energies”, according to Callahan – were built with paramagnetic material. Ideally they were sited on downward vortices and their purpose may have been to enhance crop yields, or to stimulate heightened spiritual awareness in the local monks. Moore looks at a number of simpler, scaled-down “Tower of Power” designs that can be easily built and discusses the various problems that may be encountered with inappropriate materials and siting, geological and fence-line interference and so on. She also tackles ethical concerns. Moore takes an holistic, practical approach to farm and ecosystem management – an approach that identifies and harmonises with subtle energies, utilizes eco-sound methods and applies ingenious technologies such as energy-conducting coils for improving soil life and plant growth. Her call for “the eco-farming imperative” is one that we must heed if we’re to have a sustainable future.” – Nexus magazine, Aug-Sept 2004.
Praise for the 2nd edition of Stone Age Farming:
“Ten years after the release of Stone Age Farming (see review in Nexus 8/04), dowser, geomancer and permaculture farmer Alanna Moore has published an updated, revised edition of her guide to esoteric farming and gardening practices. This edition incorporates recent findings in achieving environmental harmony through permaculture design, and long-term results in using paramagnetic antennae to improve soil health and increase crop yields. These antennae are inspired by the Irish Round Towers, which visionary Dr Phil Callahan described as “silicon rich semi-conductors of cosmic energies” because of the paramagnetic material they utilise. “Moore has practical advice on making the most of a Power Tower and on troubleshooting potential problems with location, materials, construction and environmental disturbances. Moore’s book instructs on such topics as using rock dust to save soil, restoring natural resonance with Earth acupuncture, incorporating dowsing and radionics into gardening, applying dynamic growing principles using modern biodynamics and Earth-spirited permaculture, and farming in the city. It’s big on ancient wisdom and modern, ecologically sustainable farming practices.” – Ruth Parnell, Nexus magazine, Feb-March 2012.
“All you wanted to know about using natural principles for growing healthy plants and crops can be found in this revised edition of Alanna Moore’s well respected book. The title refers to the origins of many of the principles that spring from an understanding of the energies of Irish Round Towers. Alanna has followed the theories of Dr. Phil Callaghan and helped many farmers especially in Australia to produce healthy crops using Power Towers and dowsing to enhance the energy of areas lacking in soil nutrients or rainfall. While the principles of dowsing and other more intuitive methods are explained there is still plenty of good science and it is well referenced… The dangers of modern chemical agriculture are vividly portrayed. When you read this you are left wondering why every farmer is not spreading basalt on his land instead of expensive and soil-exhausting fertilisers. But is not just a book for farmers as seen from the subtitle. Anyone who wants to grow their own food should have this book” – Kieran Comerford, Irish Society of Diviners newsletter.
“I have just finished reading it, and it has me quite excited! ….Alanna has written a book that gives all of us, whether we tend a small garden, a wild space, or a large farm, a way to connect with and enhance our space. She gives very detailed instructions on how to revitalise even the most depleted ground… Throughout the book she describes every way she has heard of or been part of to bring our land into balance, and to enhance both our growing in the fields and even our living around these spaces. She includes details of cautions, and also includes a thorough listing of references and bibliography to allow us to take any particular route as far as we want” – Barbara Botham, Canadian Society of Dowsers.
“In August 2013 I received a book for review from Alanna Moore, called ‘Stone Age Farming’, 2nd Edition. Others who have reviewed this book have said: ‘Every so often, a book comes along that will change your perception of the world. Stone Age Farming is such a book’ – and I wholeheartedly concur. This book is so interesting and so compelling that I could not put it down. I am not a farmer, nor a gardener. I just have a small garden where I grow some herbs, tomatoes, rocket, parsley etc. and I love to eat my own home-grown food. Alanna inspired me to use my dowsing and transform my garden using subtle energies, which to be honest, I had overlooked. The book contains an absolute wealth of information on all levels. It takes us from the imperatives of eco-farming where we find out the basic tenets of soil conditions, to the use of dowsing in the garden or farm, the use of paramagnetic rock dust, including dynamic growing methods and the use of Power Tower technology. This book is a unique source of information. It is clear, lucid, practical and an inspiring read. Alanna’s instructions and guidelines are clear and well presented. I do recommend it to anyone regardless if you have a garden or not. Victor Hugo once said, “There is one thing stronger than all the armies in the world, and that is an idea whose time has come.” Well, the time to return to the basics of farming and gardening has truly come!” – François Capmeil, Dowsers Society of NSW Newsletter.
“Alanna Moore is widely known and respected for her research into and teaching of various practices to improve soil, plant and stock health without the addition of chemicals. In this new edition of Stone Age Farming, she brings together and shares her knowledge and experience with updated research and new photos. Containing a wealth of information, it is primarily a resource book with well-referenced chapters, which could be used by those with a beginner’s interest to those with more experience. In its pages you will find recipes for soil revitalisation and stock health drawn from ancient Indian Vedic wisdom, biodynamic methods and Japanese traditional farming practices. There is good information about the many uses of paramagnetic rock dusts, from improving Brix levels and plants’ immune systems to accelerating decomposition of manures. The art of dowsing and its uses is covered in great detail, drawing on Alanna’s own experience over the past two decades. If you are interested in the ‘towers of power’ and the measurable improvement found in plant growth and soil dynamics you will find instructions on how to place and build one. This is a book for those of us who want to widen our knowledge of the many approaches enabling us to improve and manage our farms and gardens with care for all.” – Peta Hudson, Organic New Zealand magazine, Nov-Dec 2013.
“I treasure your book ‘Stone Age Farming’. I have had your book for years and continue to use it as a reference. In your book you already started looking into ways to protect the land from electricity, radiation, EMFs, etc. I have adopted stone circles and Power Towers in my land, so thank you very much for inspiring me. And thank you very much for responding to my letter and for the information you sent me.” – S., 2019, Canada.
