 h1. Dear readers,

 Larry Korn is an evangelist — of the soil sort. A landscape designer and permaculture instructor, Korn is best known as an editor and translator of Masanobu Fukuoka’s book The One-Straw Revolution, an eco-farming manifesto and spiritual memoir (we've published an excerpt on the site). 

 Laura McCandlish took the opportunity to speak with Korn recently; reading her interview, I had a desire to find a time machine and head back to the 1970s, in Japan, where Fukuoka was teaching Korn and others eco-farming methods. 

 But honestly, some of his sentiments are alive and well in the permaculture movement that many regular people (not just farmers) are tapping into today — people like my Pilates instructor, who, last I checked, was trying to attract a swarm of bees to a hive on her city lot.

 One takeaway? Industrial agriculture doesn't have all the answers, and we can benefit from a diversity of farming techniques — which includes, for some people, small-scale intensive efforts right in their own backyards.
