Young people today believe food comes from the grocery store without another thought about it. We are removing ourselves further from nature by destroying our lands, and removing ourselves from God!

Natural Way of Farming: The Theory and Practice of Green Philosophy

Life[ edit ] Fukuoka was born on 2 February in Iyo, Ehime , Japan, the second son of Kameichi Fukuoka, an educated and wealthy land owner and local leader. He attended Gifu Prefecture Agricultural College and trained as a microbiologist and agricultural scientist , beginning a career as a research scientist specialising in plant pathology. He worked at the Plant Inspection Division of the Yokohama Customs Bureau in as an agricultural customs inspector. In he was hospitalised with pneumonia , and while recovering, he stated that he had a profound spiritual experience that transformed his world view [7] [8] [9] and led him to doubt the practices of modern "Western" agricultural science. Among other practices, he abandoned pruning an area of citrus trees, which caused the trees to become affected by insects and the branches to become entangled. He stated that the experience taught him the difference between nature and non-intervention. After World War II , his father lost most of the family lands in postwar land reform and was left with three-eighths of an acre of rice land and the hillside citrus orchards his son had taken over before the war.
