Nature Farming (自然農法/自然農) is an ecological farming approach established by Masanobu Fukuoka, a Japanese farmer and philosopher.

Nature farming was developed further in 1970’s by Yoshikazu Kawaguchi, the current leading practitioner.
Kawaguchi simplified the method and adapted it from the idea of ‘do-nothing farming’ closer to the usual farming consciousness, which is still based on Fukuoka’s four main principles with much easier way to access the wisdom.

Quote van Fukuoka-It says that when Fukuoka entered in a forest, he was stunned by the abundance of the nature, where every things live in symbiosis, and by the realization that we harm the nature actually by doing more to it.-

Nature Farming represents actually the only truly sustainable form of agriculture known to humankind.
It is more of a ‘way of seeing nature’, rather than a ‘method of farming’ as we typically think.
This ‘way of seeing nature’ which Nature Farming suggests, is also a way to help people live more happily, peacefully, and sustainable, no matter what we choose to do for a living.
