|Summary, etc.:|| Fukuoka's inspiring and international bestselling book, The One-Straw Revolution, spoke directly to the growing movement of organic farmers and activists seeking a new way of life. For years after its publication, Fukuoka traveled the world spreading his teachings, and worked with a devoted following of farmers and organizations in Africa, India, Southeast Asia, Europe, and the United States to show how you could grow food and regenerate forests with very little irrigation in the most desolate places. Sowing Seeds in the Desert, a summation of those years of travel and research, is Fukuoka's last major work - and perhaps his most important. The book presents Fukuoka's revolutionary plan to rehabilitate the world's deserts and achieve global food security by using natural farming, including practical solutions for feeding a growing human population and providing a deep and renewed understanding of the relationship between human beings and nature. Fukuoka's message comes at a time when people around the world seem to have lost their frame of reference, and offers us a way forward.--DUST JACKET.
