Jan 9 - 2020 Masanobu Fukuoka’s method

By BAJA | BAJA | 10 Jan 2020


A very interesting concept from our Japanese friends.  This topic was suggested to me by a comment on the Jan 7 post.  Thank you.  I have read about this idea for years but never came across the name Masanobu Fukuoka.  The western equivalent is called Permaculture - and it is gaining in popularity.  Focusing on the natural cycles, shade, cover crop, rotation, animals, wildlife, etc.  It sounds simple but it takes discipline and thought to achieve.  It is very simple to dig a row, plant a seed and water - but over time the soil looses fertility because people forget it is a living organism.  Science said to use herbicides and pesticides - chemical fertilizers that never biodegrade and bioaccumulate.  I currently live in an area that doesn't abide by the Masanobu Fukuoka’s method.  When the wind comes the dirt flies.  I call it a top soil relocation project - not good.    

I will use sheep in the future.  I have wanted an orchard for years.  I currently have two nectarine trees growing in my front yard - which also includes a mimosa tree for pollinators. 

I like the Masanobu Fukuoka’s method.  I will continue to research, think and implement these concepts soon. 

I will create a YouTube video series in the upcoming future that I will link.  I welcome any suggestions and thoughts.  Thanks  

All the pictures I include are taken by me, myself and I.
