1 Fukuoka, Masanobu THE ONE-STRAW REVOLUTION: AN INTRODUCTION TO NATURAL FARMING
New York Review Books 2009 1590173139 / 9781590173138 Paperback Very Good 
A copy that has been read, but is in excellent condition. Pages are intact and not marred by notes or highlighting. The spine remains undamaged. Call it "Zen and the Art of Farming" or a "Little Green Book," Masanobu Fuk uoka's manifesto about farming, eating, and the limits of human knowledge p resents 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 balanc e of the natural world. As Wendell Berry writes in his preface, the book "i s valuable to us because it is at once practical and philosophical. It is a n inspiring, necessary book about agriculture because it is not just about agriculture." Trained as a scientist, Fukuoka rejected both modern agribusiness and centu ries of agricultural practice, deciding instead that the best forms of cult ivation mirror nature's own laws. Over the next three decades he perfected his so-called "do-nothing" technique: commonsense, sustainable practices th at all but eliminate the use of pesticides, fertilizer, tillage, and perhap s most significantly, wasteful effort. Whether 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.
