Hello Steve, no, I don´t have a contact for him anymore, last I heard he was
living in Provence.
I guess you´re talking about ASPAARI and the Paysans Boulangeurs, it´s good

especially true winter wheat´s for the Bonfils method.
If you´re looking to do your own trials of the method Nicholas Supiot of

I´m living in Spain but have been in France for some years before.
You can find a selection of Fukuoka´s books here
I should also mention there is much work by Marc Bonfils held by Association
Las Encantadas that I have made available, along with Emilia´s work here:
