Re: [fukuoka_farming] I'm preparing a speech on the Fukuoka Method, I'd like your help.
- <Since 16 i've
been doing web-research on companion planting, alternatives to pesticides,
permaculture, agro-ecology, wild ecosystems in the state of florida and
implementing what I can on my very limited scale (I know mostly theory, very
little actuality and have amassed a huge library of links.)>
Here are my questions:
How do you pronounce Fukuoka?
foukouoka ( french phonetic may be english will pronounce differently the" ou "letter)
Who here (or even who on the web) has gotten the closest to following pure
i saw a farm in kerala ( india ) heard a vietnames explaining what he was doing , and me who follow fully the principles in british colombia .
<hat other techniques do you use besides>
as i started a greens garden on a rock bluff (only close to the house sunny spot on our forested land ) i bring organic material and a thin layer of soil every year to build up the beds quicker than nature could do left alone. everywhere else i don't bring anything from the outside except the seeds and plants .
<Why did you become interested?>
because i was practicing instinctive eating allready ( eating only undenatured foods eaten by themselves one after the other respecting the senses signals for appetance and repletion .the philosophy behind was so much the same ) take everything as it is without trying to improve upon what is happenning .
as it took me over 10 years to go into pratice the instinctive eating way despite i was convinced it was what i had to do , when i read masnaobu's book i just went to practice the next day
<And how did you find out??
met the book The natural way of farming
<n your own words, please tell me what you think the concept behind the
minimum intervention NO TECHNIQUES, just doing the right thing at the right time in an ever changing reality.
a spiritaul realisation of non separation and irrelevance of discriminative thoughts ( judgements)
