Larry has written and edited articles and books on natural farming and permaculture for publications such as Mother Earth News, Rodale’s Organic Gardening and Tilth, some of which are presented on this website.

Saturday, February 2nd will be the 100th anniversary of Fukuoka-sensei’s birth. He was an inspiring teacher who freely shared his vision of nature with others. Sensei often referred to nature as “reality.” By his example, a long life well lived, he demonstrated how wonderful a true partnership with nature can be. I will be thinking of him this weekend.
