review Sowing Seeds in the Desert

Sowing Seeds in the Desert Free read ↠ 6 The earth is in great peril due to the corporatization of agriculture the rising climate crisis and the ever increasing levels of global poverty starvation and desertification on a massive scale This present condition of global trauma is not natural but a result of humanity's destructive actions And according to Masanobu Fukuoka it is reversible We need to change not only our methods of earth stewardship but also the very way we think about the relationship between human beings and natureFukuoka grew up on a farm on the island of Shikoku in Japan As a young man he worked as a customs inspector for plants going into and out of the country This was in the 1930s when science seemed poised to create a new world of abundance and leisure when people fully believed they could improve upon nature by applying scientific methods and thereby reap untold rewards While working there Fukuoka ha. Fukuoka did with farming what Ueshiba Morihei did with martial arts he radically transformed it by doing what appears to be less And like Osensei the inspiration to do so came to him suddenly in a satori like moment From such revelations have sprung Aikido and natural farming Really they are the same thing I know some readers are disappointed by Fukuoka s books because they don t really seem to say anything At times it reads like hippie nonsense drop seeds not bombs etc Osensei was accused of the same thing sometimes that the idea of a peaceful martial art transforming the world through non violence was ridiculous This is understandable given the prevalence of do thinking in the modern world If you aren t busy all the time or straining yourself to the maximum level than you must not be accomplishing muchThis is why Fukuoka s work is so important it is a needed counter to this thought pattern not to eliminate it necessarily but to restore balance We need a middle path too much of one philosophy can lead to stagnation In the case of agriculture it has led to literal stagnation of the soils and waters There were times while reading that I found myself disagreeing somewhat with Fukuoka mostly because I think his understanding of science was a little too critical or one sided But overall we would be better off if people followed his advice And what is that advice This is where people can get frustrated when you are used to complexity simplicity starts to sound like a cheat or a swindle Don t till the soil Don t use pesticides Just let plants grow wherever nature wants them to To a conventional farmer all of this sounds like a recipe for disaster And Fukuoka did meet with failure at first his initial attempt to grow an orchard by doing nothing resulted in a lot of dead trees But he stresses that there is a difference between doing nothing and abandonment Natural farming is not about neglect It is about working with nature rather than against itIf you focus only on Fukuoka s words you will miss this crucial point It is why at one point in his life he did not talk much about his ideas words were simply inadeuate The words in this book are only one part of a larger vision a vision that reuires you to look at the world in a completely different way than you have always seen it There is no separation between you and nature The soil water plants and animals do not exist just to serve you Trying to make them do so is counter productive because it just ends up hurting humanity in a round about way In the introduction the translator spoke of how Fukuoka stressed the importance of philosophy over techniue In a similar way Osensei valued the spirit of Aikido than the physical If you concentrate only on the latter you may become strong but you will not have really learned Aikido you will not have achieved harmony which is the whole point of doing Aikido in the first place What is the point of growing food faster if the food you make is less nutritious and healthy and the methods you use make it difficult to grow food in the future It is a self defeating path There is nothing for people to gain and nothing for them to lose As long as people lived according to natural law they could die peacefully at any time like withering grasses

Sowing Seeds in the Desert Free read ↠ 6 D an insight that changed his life forever He returned to his home village and applied this insight to developing a revolutionary new way of farming that he believed would be of great benefit to society This method which he called natural farming involved working with not in opposition to natureFukuoka's inspiring and internationally best selling book The One Straw Revolution was first published in English in 1978 In this book Fukuoka described his philosophy of natural farming and why he came to farm the way he did One Straw was a huge success in the West and spoke directly to the growing movement of organic farmers and activists seeking a new way of life For years after its publication Fukuoka traveled around the world spreading his teachings and developing a devoted following of farmers seeking to get closer to the truth of natureSowing Seeds in the Desert a summation of those. Fukuoka is a Japanese farmer and philosopher who largely coined the term natural farming Natural farming is an approach to farming that eliminates the use of manufactured inputs and euipment and instead leverages the work of nature and ecosystems Fukuoaka s philosophy isn t so much to do nothing but to work together with nature not separate from nature This book is about Fukuoka s experiences in developing and promoting natural farmingFukuoka claims that natural farming provides yields to the same extent to that of conventional farming with the enormous benefit of having no negative impacts on the environment Unfortunately however his claims and supporting evidence are almost entirely anecdotal Going further Fukuoka rejects scientific research and thinks human knowledge is useless As a researcher I find this perspective a bit hard to hear However I imagine his perspective may be partly emotionally influenced perhaps stemming from his frustration with conventional farming systems and the environmental degradation it has causedWhile I would have preferred credible evidence to support his claims I have much respect for Fukuoka He challenged the norm and made me think a bit differently about how we grow our food
