A farmer and Gandhian from south Gujurat, Bhaskar Save, shares some of his wisdom of ~60 decades of natural farming on 14 acres of land. When Masanobu Fukuoka visited him, he called him: The Gandhi of Natural Farming.

Bhaskar's experience with farming dramatically shifted when we applied to his practice what he called: Gandhiji's 5 Principles:
1. Harmonious coexistence for mutual benefit: Do not use artificial means to kill microbes.
2. Nothing borne out of the Mother Earth is waste.
3. Farming is not human's business. It is his/her moral duty.
4. All is Nature's will. We are mere labourers. Our rights are limited. Extract only as per your needs.
5. Do not hurry. Nature herself does not. Land is a living being. Converse with the farm.  
  There is enough for everyone's needs but not enough for anyone's greed. :-)
