Larry Korn is a soil scientist, agriculture consultant/activist and permaculture teacher who currently lives in Ashland, Oregon. He lived in Japan for four years, two of them on the farm of Masanobu Fukuoka. Larry will discuss Mr. Fukuoka's farming techniques and his unique natural farming philosophy. Larry translated and edited Mr. Fukuoka's landmark book, The One-Straw Revolution from Japanese into English. He also traveled with, and translated for Mr. Fukuoka during his two 6-week visits to the United States including stops in the Pacific Northwest. The talk will include slides of the farm as well as personal anecdotes and stories which help to give insights into Mr. Fukuoka's personality.

I hope many will create a buzz with local students to learn from Larry Korn and attend one or both his events. He also teaches at numerous permaculture design courses and its a gift to have him visit our community! See you there on Monday May 10th!

Very sad to miss this great opportunity. I will be out of town. Larry Korn did present at the PDC I took and I so enjoyed his passion for soil and for Fukuoka's work. Enjoy!
