The One-Straw Revolution: An Introduction to Natural Farming (Paperback)
Frances Moore Lappe 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 Lappe. 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.
Trained as a scientist, Fukuoka rejected both modern agribusiness and centuries of agricultural practice, deciding instead that the best forms of cultivation mirror natures 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 effort.
Whether youre a guerrilla gardener or a kitchen gardener, dedicated to slow food or simply looking to live a healthier life, you will find something hereyou may even be moved to start a revolution of your own.
