No plowing, no fertilising, no weeding, no pesticides, no pruning trees.
And yet, there is a rich harvest to be shared, enjoying the natural abundance of nature.
How is this possible?
Learn how to trust and cooperate with nature.
The Japanese Masanobu Fokuoka (2 February 1913 – 16 August 2008), author of among others, ‘One straw revolution’ and ‘Sowing seeds in the desert’, dedicated his life to the development of exploring this method of “do-nothing-farming” and the re-vegetation of desertificated lands.
This system is based on the recognition of the complexity of living organisms that shape an ecosystem and deliberately exploiting it. Fukuoka saw farming not just as a means of producing food but as an aesthetic and spiritual approach to life, the ultimate goal of which was “the cultivation and perfection of human beings”.
The weekend will be facilitated by Kutluhan Özdemir.
Kutluhan traveled and lived all over the world between 2014-2021 on natural farms started by students from Masanobu Fukuoka (the founder of Natural Farming).
Since 2019 he lives in Italy, where he bought land and practices natural farming on his own Natural Farm. This year there has been no rain since april and without irrigation or watering, there is a rich harvest. Kutluhan founded the Natural Farming Center NGO to spread the method of natural farming. He travels where he is invited, with a warm heart for places which are desertificated, and shares his knowledge with the world. He started projects in Africa, South America en different places in Italy and Europe.
Kutluhan shares his experience freely everywhere he goes. This means no one is excluded from participating. However, we do appreciate a donation, depending on your own personal situation, to pay for Kutluhan and Rubina’s flights, their stay and the needed workshop materials. The rest will partially be gifted to the NGO and partially invested in the development of a new Natural Farm in Spain.
You will be asked for a donation while registering. Just feel into yourself what excites you to give for this wonderful opportunity.
You are very welcome!
