Please allow me to recommend a revolutionary book that changed my attitude and relationship with the Earth. The book is: The One-Straw Revolution by Masanobu Fukuoka. It was first published in English (I believe) in 1978. This small book is about how Mr. Fukuoka received his epiphany about natural gardening and small acreage farming. What is Mr. Fukuoka’s advice to the farmer? Do nothing! Of course, there is more to it than that, but the author suggests a radically different approach to growing food than we currently hear from today’s “experts”. Below, I have listed an ISBN number for The One-Straw Revolution (for the copy I own) and a ten-minute video, featuring Masanobu Fukuoka and his story.
