masanobu fukuoka (1913-2008) was japanese farmer, philosopher, and scientist, but also one of the most ingenious individuals of our times. after few decades of experimenting he developed various ways of producing food almost without interventions characteristic for conventional agriculture, such as tilling, pruning, or fertilization (what is today known as permaculture), usually even with higher yields. hes work is also deeply philosophically inspired, mostly by traditional bhuddism and taoism.
the one-straw revolution is his first book, written in simple and beautiful way, and perfect for getting-to-know this great man.
