Natural Farming Workshop with Kutluhan Özdemir

Join us for an enriching weekend at the Natural Farming Network’s “Do-Nothing Farming Workshop” led by Kutluhan Özdemir. Inspired by Masanobu Fukuoka’s “One Straw Revolution,” this workshop embraces Fukuoka’s profound realization that our separation from nature is causing its destruction. Through a “do nothing” approach, Fukuoka advocated for letting nature lead fully. Dive into this transformative workshop designed to introduce participants to natural farming principles, fostering a deeper connection with the environment and promoting ecological awareness.
