In Memory of Masanobu Fukouka

Sadly, natural farming innovator Masanobu Fukuoka passed away yesterday, Saturday, August 16, 2008, at his home in Iyo, Ehime Prefecture, Japan of old age. He was 95.

Fukuoka was an inspiration for his exploration and application of ecological farming techniques that mimicked nature. He was an inspiration and keystone for Permaculture.

We give thanks for his gifts of humble service.

For more on his life
