He looked at weeds growing on the mountain he had inherited. He noticed they were making soil.

I do not think that is a blackberry in her bed with her. I believe they call it an infant. Infants are considerably more demanding than a blackberry and we can not turn them off.

You guys make me laugh!

Despite the fact that I work with computers for a living, and spend far too much time on the internet for fun and education, I am, in fact, a luddite who only recently and reluctantly owns a cell-phone. Maybe in another decade I'll acquire a blackberry.

I read this book several years ago. It was recommended by a man who was in wwoofa and actually had been on Fukuoka's farm some time in the 60's or 70's.

If you don't know about Nature Farming, or better yet, Kyusei Nature Farming, you should check that out as well. Many of the Fukuoka principals are followed in Kyusei Nature Farming, but include the addition of a microbial inoculant called Effective Microorganisms™.

Many permaculture groups incorporate similar methods as well, or combinations. My company works with a Native America farm that was designed with many of the permaculture methods as far as water harvesting, swails, gabions, etc. to maximize water usage on the farm. They also practice Kyusei Nature Farming on a commercial scale and do no-till.

Thanks for the link. I recommend the book to people all the time.
