Natural Agriculture

Shumei’s method of growing food, called Natural Agriculture, concurs with its concern for the Earth. The practice of Natural Agriculture is guided entirely by a profound reverence for the intrinsic wisdom of Nature.

Meishusama envisioned Natural Agriculture not only as a means of cultivating pure wholesome food, but also as an art and spiritual practice. It relies on understanding the relationships and bonds amongst all the elements involved: the earth, sun, rain, wind, farmer, consumer, and society at large.
