The One Straw Revolution by Masanobu Fukuoka
Watch Beyond 50's book trailer on "The One Straw Revolution" that is narrated by the book's editor Larry Korn. In 1973, he was under the tutelage of his Sensei (teacher), Masanobu Fukuoka, who lived in Shikoku Island, Japan. Korn received a hands-on education in the art of non-cultivation and do-nothing, natural farming. Translated in many languages, Masanobu Fukuoka wrote "The One Straw Revolution," (New York Book Reviews), a classic memoir and guide. You'll learn about his philosophy and the Four Principles of Natural Farming: no cultivation; no chemical fertilizer or prepare compost; no weeding by tillage and herbicides; and no dependence on chemicals. Even though his methods require less labor, it can result in higher yields for your farm or garden. To learn more, visit www.onestrawrevolution.net. *Produced and edited by Joy and Daniel Davis of Beyond 50 Productions. **Narration and photos provided by Larry Korn, editor and translator of "The One Straw Revolution" (www.onestrawrevolution.net). ***Video Images from "The Close to Nature Garden with Masanobu Fukuoka", courtesy of Rodale Press and Bullfrog Films, Inc.

Farming Lessons from Luke 12
http://www.margaretfeinberg.com After spending time with a farmer in Nebraska, the parable Jesus told in Luke 12 came alive. In the parable, a rich farmer has such an abundant crop he decides to build another barn to hold it all. In an ancient agrarian society, nobody knew which year would yield bumper crops and which would have famines. If the rich farmer did have a bumper crop, then the value of his produce is lowered by the other farmers' abundance. Storing his crop may make perfect fiscal sense. But regardless of the man's reasoning, Jesus calls him a fool. All of his wealth would go to someone else. I don't think it's the abundance that causes Jesus to react this way, but instead that the man doesn't acknowledge God's role in the blessing at all. When we use what God gives wisely, we glorify him. ** Margaret Feinberg is a popular Bible teacher and speaker at churches and leading conferences such as Catalyst, Thrive and Extraordinary Women.

The Basics of Natural Farming (part 1 of 2)
This video is about a garden I started in Preston Hollow, NY after reading Masonobu Fukuoka's "One-Straw Revolution" and applying those theories and practices to vegetable gardening. To view part 2, please follow this linnk: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0K8gn8R_Ino I grew fresh vegetables for a small CSA (Community Shared Agriculture) , local markets and my friends and family. Much of my gardening practice coincides with the principles of permaculture. No-till farming creates permanent planting areas, in this way, one can incorporate perennial growing alongside the annuals. Artistically, I was inspired by Carl Sagan's Cosmos and the work of David Attenborough, which I grew up adoring as a child. I find it ironic how modern media was one of the original gateways to my increasing curiosity about nature, though perhaps this is what I hope to mimic by putting together my personal story with this garden. I hope to continue learning from nature for years to come... and hopefully inspire others to do so themselves. Resistance is fertile, folks! Oh yeah... and check out my website: www.collectedseed.com

Sustainable Development 101
A short sustainable development (sustainability) video animation explaining what it is, how to define it and how to apply solutions to move towards it. Please see below for the video's script. For further information about how we can help you and your organisation unleash the opportunities of sustainable visit www.principledsustainability.com and www.simongoldsmith.com Twitter: simontgoldsmith Sustainability Slides Script: Slide 1 Hello, this short presentation explains key themes to help you understand Sustainable Development. During this presentation you will learn how it can benefit you, your organisation and how it can help protect our future. This video seeks to add to your basic sustainability knowledge and explains a great framework to help address it in ways that are attractive, positive and attainable. We hear the word sustainability frequently used, but often people don't accurately understand its meaning. The problem is if we don't properly understand its meaning then it will be difficult, if not impossible, to make decisions to attain it. So why is it important? Slide 2 OK, here we have three systems -- the economy, society and the environment. Often in decision-making we treat each of these as separate systems, however, if we look closer we realise that there are significant interrelationships and reliance's between each system and their long term success and health. Slide 3 We will begin with the economy which is dependent on society for its labour, markets and key social systems for it to function. Slide 4 Both the economy and society are dependent on the environment that provides them with the raw materials, food, clean air and water and many systems we rely upon. Increasingly these interrelationships are becoming visible as impacts, in terms of climate change, water scarcity, pollution, health issues and so on. As our planet is finite we need to recognise that our current 'business as usual' model will need to adapt to work within the environmental systems whilst ensuring we are not undermining fundamental human needs. Slide 5 Our growing population is consuming ever more goods and services produced by our businesses, in turn depleting resources whilst increasing pollution. At the same time we are undermining the capacity of the environment to provide the resources and natural systems upon which we ultimately depend. So our goal should be to ensure our economy and society can function effectively within scientifically defined boundaries, moving us towards becoming a sustainable society. Slide 6 Fortunately a clear set of 4 guiding principles have been developed, and are part of a peer reviewed, rigorously tested framework by the Swedish NGO The Natural Step. These 4 principles that help us define how to attain a vision of becoming a sustainable society enabling us to make decisions that will get us there. If you would like to read through these then pause the presentation now, otherwise we can continue. Slide 7 With these principles in mind we can set our vision to become a sustainable society. Using a strategic planning approach called 'backcasting' we know what our vision is and then consider our current reality, understanding the impacts and actions we make today. To be sustainable we have to plan to reduce and eliminate activities that are unsustainable according to the 4 principles. This won't happen overnight and have to be based on an ongoing ability to obtain a return on investment whilst providing a flexible platform that will take us in the direction of our vision. Slide 8 Sustainability is a positive strategic process and the sooner we act the easier the transition will be, maximising opportunities and meeting our own individual and collective needs illustrated on this frame. Please press pause if you need time to read this. By looking at sustainability strategically we can prepare for the future using a long term vision to align decision making whilst also generating short term benefits. Slide 9 I hope this short presentation has helped you better understand what sustainability is, how crucial it is and how it relates to you and your success. By applying a clear approach to help us strategically move towards it. For more information please contact us. www.principledsustainability.com

Joel Salatin of Polyface Farms discusses grass-fed cattle
On a "lunatic" tour of Polyface Farms, June 18, 2010, Joel Salatin, owner, discusses the process and benefits of raising cattle on grass. For the past 50 years, raising beef in the United States has generally been about growing beef bigger, faster, and cheaper on as little land as possible. Contrary to the pastoral image one may have of farming, most cows raised in the United States these days eat corn -- which they were never meant to eat -- and get sick from it. Cows in the US receive a fair amount of antibiotics to compensate, and their manure is collected in huge lagoons that are too riddled with antibiotics to feed back to the corn that feeds them. Joel Salatin, owner of Polyface Farms, believes in raising animals in a way that mimics the processes of nature: Cows graze one area of grass, and a few days later, chickens graze the same area and eat the fly larvae out of the manure. The manure from both fertilizes the grass. Joel Salatin discusses a little of this process, here.

Preservation Harvest - Produce that Makes a Difference
Last year when the price of corn started going up around Exeter, California, due to demand for ethanol, Mr. Herrera, an 80-year-old owner of 22 acres of family farmland, nearly plowed under his 40-year-old orchard. It made more financial sense to throw out his family farming history (and some sweet plum varieties) rather than go through another year of harvest and low prices from the local packing shed. It shouldn't have to be this way. That's where we came in. Ronnie Guiterrez, a local farmer in the area and family friend of Mr. Herrera came to us with an idea. What if we put together a new kind of company? A company dedicated to some basic and sustainable principles in agriculture. Things like: the preservation of small family farms, the stewardship of land through use of organic farming methods, helping farmers fund a season so that they weren't betting their business to the bank each year and having farmers share in the financial fruits of their labor. Thus Preservation Harvest was born, brought to you by The FruitGuys. Visit us at http://www.preservationharvest.com.

The 5 Rome's Principles and the Millennium Goals _ Ambassador Cousin
Video filming & editing: USEU/Office of Public Affairs, Brussels, Belgium. Ertharin Cousin, Ambassador to the UN Agencies in Rome - Excerpts from Remarks to EU Policymakers, Opinion Leaders, NGO Representatives and Media in Brussels, May 26, 2010  Transcription: That commitment, that financial commitment at L'Aquila that the countries agreed to is based around five key principles: Investing in country-owned plans and programs; fostering strategic coordination at the national, regional and global level, and striving for a twin track approach to food security that consists of direct action immediately to tackle hunger for the most vulnerable; simultaneous with medium and long term sustainable agricultural food security, nutrition and rural development programs. This also would require ensuring a role for multilateral organizations, recognition on the part of the donor community that bilateral relationships, one country alone could not make the kind of systemic change that we need in agricultural development and food security. Finally, the fifth pillar that the global community agreed to was ensuring a sustained and substantial commitment by all partners to investment in agriculture and food security. These five principles represent a change in the paradigm for how the global community will look and work together on the food security issues. These are the building principles for all of our work. And while they were first adopted by the G8 what was most impressive is that they were reaffirmed last year in the Rome Summit, the Rome World Food Summit by the entire UN membership. Many people believed that we could not come together as a global community on what were the pillars that would support a change in the food security system, but to the surprise of the global community we did come together because there was a recognition not just by the donor countries but by the developing countries that this is a formula that if we are willing to truly adhere to it will result in the kind of success that will be required for us to achieve the Millennium Goals.

Dick Wittman says that governments are focussed on farm management proficiency versus throwing money out at agriculture in other forms. He says that "We roll out the barrel for organics, value-added marketing, supply-chain building, as if these are the savior of agriculture. Meanwhile, we're ignoring the fact that our industry is seriously faiiling in its quest to build a business management model that is sustainable."

CED 50th Anniversary - Visualizing the Future of Environmental Design: Biomimicry in the Built World: Consulting Nature as Model, Measure, and Mentor Janine Benyus, President and Founder, Biomimicry Institute Biomimicry is the science and practice of asking, How would nature solve this design challenge? Architects, city planners, and building engineers are at the forefront of this emerging discipline, inviting biologists to the design table to create dwellings that learn from the genius of the place. Native organisms become models for buildings that gather water from fog, capture sunlight with their skins, clean themselves with rainwater, and weather hurricanes with grace. Commercialized products include fans inspired by whale flippers, glues inspired by marine mussels, and solar cells based on the inner workings of leaves. In one of the most exciting new fronts for biomimicry, planners are consulting nature as measure, setting the bar for city performance by quantifying the ecosystem services of native ecosystems. Biologists pull data on tons of carbon stored, gallons of water absorbed in a storm, degrees of summer cooling, millimeters of soil formed, etc., and these ecological performance standards become the new goal for cites. Working together, buildings, hardscapes, and landscapes must provide the same level of services as the ecosystem that would have naturally grown there. When our cities are functionally indistinguishable from the wildlands that surround them, says Janine Benyus, we will have learned to be a welcome species at home on this planet. http://www.ced.berkeley.edu

Part 3: Examples from Tropical Agriculture 2: Cassava
'Agriculture, Environment and the Developing World: A Future of PCR' Part 3: Examples from Tropical Agriculture 2: Cassava Plenary lecture by Richard Jefferson, CEO Cambia, Cold Spring Harbor, September, 1994. In this 1994 presentation, Professor Richard Jefferson introduces the concept of the hologenome - the idea that microbes are not only ubiquitous, but that they may also be the most important component that drives the evolution of macro-organisms. Hologenomes are essential to appreciating the natural variation responsible for much of the world's agricultural adaptation and performance, and the intrinsic impossibility of extrapolating from model systems. See 'The Hologenome & Hologenomics: a different lens on evolution,' http://blogs.cambia.org/raj/index.php/2007/09/06/the-hologenome-hologenomics/. Available as number 6 in a series of 7 VHS recordings, 'A Decade of PCR: Celebrating 10 Years of Amplification,' released by Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory Press, 1994.
