The Gandhian economics of natural farming was given to us most beautifully by the great Japanese philosopher-farmer Fukuoka in his 1978 classic The One Straw Revolution. This is what he has to say:
I believe that Gandhi's way, a methodless method, acting with a non-winning, non-opposing state of mind, is akin to natural farming. When it is understood that one loses joy and happiness in the attempt to possess them, the essence of natural farming will be realized. The ultimate goal of farming is not the growing of crops but the cultivation and perfection of human beings.
