The One-Straw Revolution
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.
