Do-nothing Farming (ENG)
Hiroki Fukuoka yukiyasu kaneko

(Simultaneous interpretation - English). Hiroki is the grandson of the late Masanobu Fukuoka, a Japanese farmer and philosopher who wrote the seminal book ‘The One-Straw Revolution’, in which he advocated the concept of do-nothing farming. Hiroki still runs the 10-hectare family farm, where he grows citrus, wheat, rice and vegetables. He says: “The essence of natural farming is a “philosophy of nothingness”, and it is difficult to understand natural farming without understanding this concept, which is a feeling and almost spiritual in nature.” Discover more in this fascinating talk.
