9788185569314: The One-straw Revolution: Introduction to Natural Farming

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 effortWhether you re a guerrilla gardener or a kitchen gardener, dedicated to slow food or simply looking to live a healthier life, you will find something here you may even be moved to start a revolution of your own.

About the Author:

Masanobu Fukuoka (1913 2008) was born and raised on the Japanese island of Shikoku. He was the oldest son of a rice farmer who was also the local mayor. Fukuoka studied plant pathology and worked for number of years as a produce inspector in the customs office in Yokohama. But in 1938 he returned to his village home determined to put his ideas about natural farming into practice. During World War II, he worked for the Japanese government as a researcher on food production, managing to avoid military service until the final few months of the war. After the war, he returned to Shikoku to devote himself wholeheartedly to farming. And in 1975, distressed by the effects of Japan s post-war modernization, Fukuoka wrote The One-Straw Revolution. In his later years, Fukuoka was involved with several projects to reduce desertification throughout the world. He remained an active farmer until well into his eighties, and continued to give lectures until only a few years before his death at the age of ninety-five. Fukuoka is also the author of The Natural Way of Farming and The Road Back to Nature. In 1988 he received the Magsaysay Award for Public Service.Frances Moore Lappé is author or co-author of sixteen books, including Diet for a Small Planet and Getting a Grip: Clarity, Creativity, and Courage in a World Gone Mad. She has co-founded three organizations, including the Institute for Food and Development Policy and, more recently, the Small Planet Institute, which she leads with her daughter Anna Lappé. In 1987, she received the Right Livelihood Award, also called the Alternative Nobel. She has received seventeen honorary doctorates and has been a visiting scholar at MIT.

Descripción Other India Press 0. Softcover. Estado de conservación: New. Few books written in our soulless times have succeeded in transforming people`s minds, spirits and lives as completely as Masanobu Fukuoka`s One-Straw Revolution. Struck by the manner in which modern agriculture and its methods were destroying the soil, Fukuoka opted out of his technical career (he had been trained as an agricultural scientist) and returned to his village home. Here he resumed traditional farming and refined it so that his methods required less labour and minimal disruption of nature. His techniques helped generate crop yields as good as those on neighbouring fields mutilated by tractors and heavily dosed with synthetic fertilisers and pesticides. In The One - Straw Revolution, Fukuoka - today considered one of the most outstanding organic farmers of our century - describes the events that led to the development of his natural farming methods and the impact these have had on his land, on himself and on the thousands of people who have learnt from his technique. In the process, he has left the very foundations of modern agriculture in splendid disarray. Fukuoka demonstrates how the way we look at farming influences the way we look at health, the school, nature, nutrition, spiritual health and life itself. He joins the healing of the land to the process of purifying the human spirit and proposes a way of life and a way of farming in which such healing can - take place. This book - an all-time classic - is a clarion call to all of us to abandon modern agriculture and its destructive methods and poisons, and to return to our far richer heritage of working closely and simply with the land.
