The One Straw Revolution.


An Introduction to Natural Farming.

Masanobu Fukuoka.

Re-reading this wonderful book. Masanobu Fukuoka witnessed with indignation, the degeneration of both the land and Japanese society. In those years the Japanese have followed single mindedly the American model of economic and industrial development , abandoning the rich heritage of working closely and simply with the land.

Mr Fukuoka, however was determined not to forsake traditional farming. Instead he refined it so that his natural farming methods, requires less labor and less disruption of nature than any other, while maintaining the same yields per acre/hectare as his chemical farmer neighbours.

From the preview.

And for a laugh.
