This guy developed a simple way to farm and have the soil gain in fertility. Kinda cool.

Review by

The One Straw Revolution is an inspirational book that is very easy to read. Whilst not all of the ideas and practices are suited to everybody and everywhere, I think that nearly everyone would be able to take something from the book.The basics of the book is a move from massive agri-business monoculture to small scale natural farming; and it is a move that the author made more than 30 years ago successfully. The book isn't an overly optimistic one sided account and fairly includes his failures as well as his successes.Highly recommended for anyone who enjoys gardening and/or cropping.

This was a fascinating book about one Japanese farmer's approach to agriculture and small-scale organic farming as both a practical pursuit and a spiritual path. I will probably re-read it.
