This white paper was produced thanks to my mentor, Dr. Han Kyu Cho of the Korean Natural Farming Association and the influence of the natural farmers I visited and apprenticed with in Japan.
“Farmers have lost the independent authority which they had in the farming techniques of the old days. Farmers have become dependent in buying almost everything that they need in farming, and they are now just engaged in farming by role according to the program presented by the seller.”
“I insist to recover the spirit of farmers. To achieve it is impossible until the exhilarated farming that farmers can recover subjectivity in the farming technique is realized.”
“A new vision of farming techniques is needed to recover the true nature of farming. There is a hidden possibility to realize a new vision in the ways that farmers make and apply which are necessary farming materials by making use of local materials actively.” – Dr. Han Kyu Cho
