All of Fukuoka's books are available in India from
Oasis Books, 17, Kuthchery Road, Chennai (Madras).
They are published in Chennai too by a company called
Bookventure. I guess you may still be an Indian
citizen with some family in India who can maybe get
these books and mail them to you in Australia. The
books cost Indian Rupees 150 (One Straw Revolution),
300 (Natural way of Farming) & 300 (Road back to
The best way to start if you dont have a garden is to
buy some (organic) compost put it in a medium size
plastic bag (grocery bags are quite good), punch a few
holes in them and sow vegetable or any seed u like.
After the seed has sprouted and seedling is maybe 3-4
inches, put uncooked kitchen waste - vegetable, fruit
remains, avoid meat to prevent vermins - , coffee
grounds, tea grounds etc around the plant. This
basically conserves water and u can water the plant
sparingly - maybe once every 10 days or so. The plant
will grow and bear vegetable or fruit.
The best advice as Fukuoka says 'I am a seed sower'.
Sow seed and off you go!
