"The One-Straw Revolution" - An Introduction to Natural Farming" by Masanobu Fukuoka and English Editor - Larry Korn! Great time to re-read this classic book from the late 70's! Library should have a copy, plus Village Books will have softback reprints by this Thursday.

"The New Organic Grower - A Master's Manual of Tools and Techniques for the Home & Market Gardener" -by Eliot Coleman (Library or village books). Especially see chapters on "Farm Generated Fertility" and "Direct Seeding" and "A Final Question" (why do you want to be a farmer? )
""A community is the mental and spiritual condition of knowing that the place is shared, and that the people who share the place define and limit the possibilities of each other's lives" - Wendell Berry

"We have reached a point at which we must either consciously desire and choose and determine the future of the earth or submit to such an involvement in our destructiveness that the earth, and ourselves with it, must certainly be destroyed. And we have come to this at a time when it is hard, if not impossible, to foresee a future that is not terrifying." - Wendell Berry

"The Future of Globel Thinking" by Wendell Berry
http://spider.georgetowncollege.edu/htallant/border/bs10/grubbs.htm...

"These instructions are at the heart of Berry's personal and literary world, and collectively they express the thesis informing all of his work, a canon now in excess of thirty books of essays, fiction, and poetry:"
"* Beware the justice of Nature.
*Understand that there can be no successful human economy apart from Nature or in defiance of Nature.
*Understand that no amount of education can overcome the innate limits of human intelligence and responsibility. We are not smart enough or conscious enough or alert enough to work responsibly on a gigantic scale.
*In making things always bigger and more centralized, we make them both more vulnerable in themselves and more dangerous to everything else. Learn, therefore, to prefer small-scale elegance and generosity to large-scale greed, crudity, and glamour.
* Make a home. Help to make a community. Be loyal to what you have made.
* Put the interest of the community first.
* Love your neighbors--not the neighbors you pick out, but the ones you have.
* Love this miraculous world that we did not make, that is a gift to us.
* As far as you are able make your lives dependent upon your local place, neighborhood, and household--which thrive by care and generosity--and independent of the industrial economy, which thrives by damage.
* Find work, if you can, that does no damage. Enjoy your work. Work well." -WB
