Farming to Create Heaven on Earth
"Farming to Create Heaven on Earth" is an exploration of Natural Agriculture, the food and farming movement born in Japan and now practiced throughout the world. Each chapter tells the story of a farm or group of consumers who are practicing this philosophy-based approach to growing and eating food. Together, the stories introduce a new approach to considering our relationship with food, one that its members hope will do nothing less than achieve world peace.
"This book is a remarkable chronicle of a truly revolutionary path toward finding our way 'home,' as integral members of the natural world. Guiding us to far more than delicious, nourishing food, Natural Agriculture offers possibilities for transforming our relationships with the Earth and with each other." - Paul Winter
