98RE: [fukuoka_farming] cooperative fukuoka farming.
- Dec 1, 2001Hello Murali, I know from the Other India Press edition of the One Straw
Revolution that The Friends Rural Centre, Rusalia, Hoshangabad District,
Madhya Pradesh, are using Fukuoka inspired agriculture in an Indian setting
(from the forward by Partap Aggarwal); however, I know also how different
the weather is between your two states from experience and perhaps the cross
over would be limited. I'm sure there must be an Indian association because
I know in what high regard Fukuoka is held in your country and the especial
relevance his methods have for the non-industrialised, rural areas of India
(ie most of India). I am just beginning my own small farm here in France and
your idea of a collective is interesting, perhaps in this electronic age it
would also be possible to have an electronic collective supporting farmers
newly inspired by Fukuoka. Such support groups can be very useful in
creating alternative thinking, even if your climate, culture, soil etc are
But let us know how your getting on with establishing your farm along
Fukuoka lines and if there are others in Tamil Nadu of similar ideas. Also
let me know where about you are as I have friends in Coimbatore and have
travelled widely in your very beautiful state.

I am looking for people to join me in trying the
fukuoka method on a large scale.What I mean is that a group of
atleast 10 people should join together and try this method of farming
on 100 acres collectively.Since it will not be farming alone but
creating an alternative lifestyle itself it needs people who are
dedicated on a long term basis. Since I already have a farm in India
in TamilNadu I will be too happy if I can network with someone from
my state.I am open to alternative suggestions too.
