The One-Straw Revolution: An Introduction to Natural Farming (New York Review Books Classics)
His philosophy and the Four Principles of Natural Farming are:
- No cultivation
- No chemical fertilizer or prepared compost
- No weeding by tillage and herbicides
- No pruning of fruit trees
- No dependence on chemicals
From just this one straw ... a Revolution could begin.
Unless people can become natural people,
there can be neither natural farming nor natural food.
To the extent that people separate themselves from Nature,
they spin further and further from the Centre.
Natural Farming is not simply a way of growing crops;
it is the cultivation and perfection of human beings.
The One Straw Revolution by Masanobu Fukuoka.
An understanding of Nature lies beyond the reach of human intelligence.
