The one-straw revolution : an introduction to natural farming by Masanobu Fukuoka ( Book )
19 editions published between 1970 and 2014 in English and Undetermined and held by 474 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"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. As Wendell Berry writes in his preface, the book 'is valuable to us because it is at once practical and philosophical. It is an inspiring, necessary book about agriculture because it is not just about agriculture'. Trained as a scientist, Fukuoka rejected both modern agribusiness and centuries of agricultural practice, deciding instead that the best forms of cultivation mirror nature's own laws. Over the next three decades he perfected his so-called do-nothing technique: commonsense, sustainable practices that all but eliminate the use of pesticides, fertilizer, tillage, and perhaps most significantly, wasteful effort." -- Book cover
Sowing seeds in the desert : natural farming, global restoration, and ultimate food security by Masanobu Fukuoka ( Book )
3 editions published between 2012 and 2013 in English and held by 296 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Fukuoka's inspiring and international bestselling book, The One-Straw Revolution, spoke directly to the growing movement of organic farmers and activists seeking a new way of life. For years after its publication, Fukuoka traveled the world spreading his teachings, and worked with a devoted following of farmers and organizations in Africa, India, Southeast Asia, Europe, and the United States to show how you could grow food and regenerate forests with very little irrigation in the most desolate places. Sowing Seeds in the Desert, a summation of those years of travel and research, is Fukuoka's last major work - and perhaps his most important. The book presents Fukuoka's revolutionary plan to rehabilitate the world's deserts and achieve global food security by using natural farming, including practical solutions for feeding a growing human population and providing a deep and renewed understanding of the relationship between human beings and nature. Fukuoka's message comes at a time when people around the world seem to have lost their frame of reference, and offers us a way forward.--DUST JACKET
