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 Osamu Yoshino, a natural agriculture farmer, and Keiko Domae a food activist who started one of Japan's first Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) networks. These two individuals worked together to build a successful natural farm by fostering a strong consumer awareness of the relationship between food, farm, and people. Many thanks to the Shumei Natural Agriculture organization for their help in arranging and translating this particular interview.
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.
