As the World Changes….

These are unprecedented times. Yet, many are saying this is the time that has been predicted, where the old system crumbles away and the new is able to emerge: a hospice of the old ways and a midwife of the new culture to come. The work we support through Abundant Earth Foundation is focused on growing the positive solutions that will offer food security, equality, and a deeper sense of community around the world through permaculture and other regenerative ways of living.

With the Coronavirus, we have had more requests for financial support than usual, as so many are experiencing difficult times. We are making as many small, but impactful, donations as we can to organizations feeding the people in their area through sustainable agriculture. Donations will go directly to these efforts and are tax-deductible in the US.

Together, we will get through this!

AEF says goodbye to Larry Korn; a dear friend, mentor,
and bright spirit in the world!

Larry Korn was a young man when he ventured across the Pacific Ocean from California to Japan for an adventure that would shape his life. It was here that he met Masanobu Fukuoka and learned to live and farm in tune with the Earth through Natural Farming. Larry translated into English Fukuoka’s groundbreaking book, The One-Straw Revolution and later Sowing Seeds in the Desert. For the rest of his life, Larry shared these and other great lessons he learned through a uniquely humorus way of teaching around the world.

Larry had just returned from teaching Natural Farming in Columbia when he passed on November 19, 2019. Please click here to read more about Larry and see the video of his Celebration of Life that was held on January 11, 2020 in Ashland, Oregon.

Despite all the many gifts and smiles Larry gave to the world, he left us way too soon! Larry, you will be missed, but your students and friends shall carry on your legacy.


Abundant Earth Foundation is a nonprofit organization that raises funds for grassroots projects that use sustainable agriculture to benefit both local and global communities. The projects focus on education, supporting youth, women-led projects, refugee camps, and strategies that create regenerative livelihoods in order to pay people to heal the planet’s ecosystems.

Donations to Abundant Earth Foundation also provide scholarships and sponsorships of permaculture and regenerative agriculture educational events.
