Re: [fukuoka_farming] natural farming/Kostas
- Hi Kostas,
Does Panagiotis grow any of Fukuoka's "Happy Hill" rice, by any chance? Or does he know other students (maybe in Aisia?) who might be growing it?
When you make the seed balls, do you use only clay, or add other material, like some organic matter? What kinds of seeds are you planting with the seed balls?

I am new to the group and new to natural farming and farming/gardening
Life has brought me to northen greece (thessaloniki), after a 30 year
stay in the states.
I have been practicing natural farming for a year or so on a 10,000
m^2 piece of land.
I am very pleased with the results - I use the land to feed to family
We have here in northern Greece (Edessa)one of Fukuoka's students, who
has established a farm for the last 17 years or so. His farm is just
like fukuoka describes and shows in his books (like heaven).
Panagiotis has been assisting/teaching me in this matter - he is very
generous with his time.
We make seed balls here using a red powedered clay and small concrete
People come from all over Europe, and spend time with Panagitis
learning natural farming.
If anyone is interested I have some photos
