The One-Straw Revolution
by Masanobu Fukuoka
Call it Zen and the Art of Farming or a Little Green Book, Masanobu Fukuoka s manifesto about farming, eating, and the limits of human knowledge presents a radical challenge to the global systems we rely on for our food. At the same time, it is a spiritual memoir of a man whose innovative system of cultivating the earth reflects a deep faith in the wholeness and balance of the natural world. Subtitled, An Introduction to Natural Farming.
A manifesto about farming, eating and the limits of human knowledge that presents a radical challenge to the global food systems we rely on. Fukuoka, after training as a scientist and becoming distressed about Japan’s post-war modernization, returned to his birthplace to put his natural farming ideas into practice. Fukuoka’s innovative system of cultivating the earth reflects a deep faith in the wholeness and balance of the natural world. In this book he shares his “do-nothing” technique of commonsense, sustainable practices that all but eliminate the use of pesticides, fertilizer, tillage and especially wasteful effort.
