>Dear Friends, I am enclosing an announcement from the European Center

>INTERNATIONAL SEEDBALL MEETING IN GREECE
>The recent great climate change all over the world must have left no
>doubt, at least to those who are aware of the degree of destruction in
>nature, that we have no time to loose. We have to act the soonest
>possible and work to create a Paradise on Earth. Never before
>Fukuoka's philosophy, vision of life and practice were so timely of
>great importance than in the present critical time humanity lives.
>Let me quote a passage from his latest book, The Revolution of God,
>Nature and Man, to be published in English soon:
>" Who is that tramples and lays waste the Garden of Eden. Rather than
>the foolish man who ignorantly cuts down a tree, the wise man who
>knows better but acquiesces is the greater sinner.
>God is silent.
>God takes no revenge.
>But when nature perishes and God dies, man also dies.
>Now God is alone.
>God needs the assistance of people of good will.
>If you are a farmer, you can sow seeds in the desert. Even city
>dwellers can plant daikon seeds by the roadside and vacant lots. To
>turn the earth into green fertile fields we need neither plows nor
>hoes. Children and birds will plant four leaf clovers.
>Let us walk about asking people to stop raising cows and grazing sheep
>to satisfy their own desires.
>Poets should sing the song of nature and artists paint nature to show
>people where to find God.
>Let us, one and all, participate in the work of God.
>Let us turn the earth into a green paradise.
>It will not be easy to bring back nature.
>But it is not impossible.
>It is said that walking the path of God is more difficult than for a
>camel to pass through the eye of a needle back. If we bring the mind's
>eye close to the eye of the needle, even that small hole becomes
>Isn't the camel our own inflated ego?
>If men become humble, with no knowledge, no desire, no possessions,
>they will be able to pass through the small hole with ease.
>Anyone can hold God in his hand.
>Just like Sakyamuni and Christ.
>Let us hold a single flower "
>From the 24th of August up to the 2nd of September people from all
>over the world will spend ten days together making clayballs that will
>be sown at the end of September over an area of 300 hectares in
>They will have the opportunity to learn more on the technique of
>clayballs (seedballs), to exchange ideas on how to synchronize our
>work in their respective countries, the establishment of natural
>farms, the greening of the deserts and the barren mountains.
>Anyone who wants to participate is welcome. The meeting place will be
>the Natural Farming Center in Klisohori, Edessa, Greece.
>TO THOSE WHO WANT TO SOW SEEDS IN THE DESERT
