Masanobu Fukuoka

The One-Straw Revolution: An Introduction to Natural Farming


A masterful manifesto on the interconnectedness of all life, and how the practice of natural farming and eating is at once the most simple and human thing we can do, as well as one of the most radical.

Trained scientist and lifelong farmer Masanobu Fukuoka intentionally blurs the lines between the practical and philosophical, arguing against both modern agribusiness as well as agricultural practice as it has stood for the last several centuries while maintaining the imperative of retaining a deep faith in the wholeness and balance of the natural world, of which humans are an inherent part.
