What is natural farming?

Natural farming shows us how simply trusting nature creates an abundance of food and contributes to a healthy and alive soil.  Instead of trying to control and manipulate, we leave it up to nature. There is no plowing, weeding, use of chemicals, fertilizing, or pruning needed. 

 

Massanobu Fukuoka

Masanobu Fukuoka was a farmer and a philosopher who lived in Japan. Through many years of observation, Fukuoka developed the natural farming method or "do-nothing farming". He was very known for the re-vegetation of desertified areas. 

 

His method is based on five principles:

  • No plowing or tilling.

  • No use of prepared or no need to make compost.

  • No weeding.

  • No use of pesticides or herbicides.

  • No pruning of fruit trees.

The system is based on the recognition of the complexity of living organisms that shape an ecosystem. Fukuoka saw farming not just as a means of producing food but as an aesthetic and spiritual approach to life, the ultimate goal of which was “the cultivation and perfection of human beings”.

Time to wake up

We have become far removed from our own nature in believing that we have to control and manipulate, use fertilizers, or buy expensive technological things to cultivate our own food. When you apply natural farming, you understand that all this is really unnecessary and we can simply trust nature and go back to simplicity. Applying natural farming helps and challenges you to let go ideas, convictions, belief systems, methods and so on. It is a joyful process between you and nature, inviting you to go within, meeting yourself in that silent space and act from that inner knowing, that for such a long time has been silenced by societal noise.

We start with helping the soil to become rich, fertile and alive. She is hungry so we feed her by integrating as much biodiversity as we can. She will awaken and provide us with so much abundance, there is enough for everyone.
