This weekend, to celebrate Fukuoka's 100th birthday, Larry Korn will be joining us to answer our questions about Fukuoka's techniques, his books and much more.

There are up to four copies of Fukuoka's book The One-Straw Revolution up for grabs. In additions, we will also give away some seed ball kits from our friend Gail Saito of Seedsinaball.com.

Larry himself will be popping into the forum over the next few days answering questions and joining in discussions.

From now through Sunday February 3rd, any posts in this forum, ie the Fukuoka forum, could be selected to win.

To win, you must use a name that follows our naming policy and you must have your email set up in Paul's daily-ish email..

The winners will be notified by email and must respond within 24 hours.

His website is www.onestrawrevolution.net

Posts in this thread won't count, but please feel free to say hi to Larry and make him feel at home!

I'm on the phone with Larry right now. He is having some trouble posting to permies. I think it has to do with some new security stuff. We're trying to fix things!

Welcome back Larry. Thanks for all your efforts in translating this book. Do these techniques work well in the Northeast? I'd like to try the seedballs on a long neglected plot. Thank you.

Sure, natural farming can be practiced in the Northeast. How do you think the indeginous people managed? When you look at it and compare I think you will find that the world view of the indeginous people of North American and world-wide was the same as what Fukuoka-san is trying to explain in his way. Certainly their techniques are a perfect demonstration of people in a wonderful partnership with nature.

Thanks, Larry. I have a lot left to learn. Own 2.5 acres and am trying to make it become healthy and happy land.
