I heard yesterday that Larry died.  I am not sure of the particulars, but when I cam to find "the thread" about this here on permies, it seems we didn't have anything.

Larry is most famous for his work that masanobu fukuoka.   Not only did Larry spend three years working at fukuoka's place, but Larry did the translations for Fukuoka's books.  Larry also facilitated a meeting between Fukuoka and Mollison.

Here are a couple of my youtube videos with Larry:





And one podcast:

As we loose one valuable member of the circle of life, hopefully his efforts will have helped many others join the circle.

I just heard that Larry Korn has passed away. I never met him, but he was a FB friend and I did an online PDC he taught. He seemed to be a very nice man. May he rest in peace... he leaves an incredible legacy.  His page is still active - people are posting great stuff, all sorts of quotes and memorabilia. He seemed to be such a genuine and gentle man. One Straw Revolution will always be the ideal for me. https://www.facebook.com/LarryKorn

Hi, occasional forum reader first time poster. I discovered Larry Korn / Fukuoka videos over the summer and was sad to hear about his passing. I actually learned about it while watching a recently released interview of him here:




Found myself rather fascinated from a talk he gave a couple years ago:

It appears that he was 71. Here is an obituary. I enjoyed several of his videos in the past. He did a lot to spread some very good ideas.
