This series of 'Short Take' interviews offer sneak peaks of characters from the upcoming documentary film "Final Straw," a film which explores Japanese natural farming and the relationships between people and the environment.
This time around, we meet natural farming teacher Yoshikazu Kawaguchi of Nara, Japan, who tells us why over 300 students come to his free farming courses each month, what they want from the experience, and where they come from.
More on Natural Farming: The concept was brought to the modern day agricultural world by two Japanese farmers, Masanobu Fukuoka and Mokichi Okada, and since its introduction has been slowly making its way into communities around the world who wish to create a more sustainable life, and to create closer connections with the land in our towns and cities.
Films For Action empowers citizens with the information and perspectives essential to creating a more just, sustainable, and democratic society.
