Description - The Idler (issue 38) How to Save the World without Really Trying by Tom Hodgkinson

The "Idler" team believe that idleness is unjustly criticised in modern society when it is, in fact, a vital component of a happy life. This new issue of the "Idler" looks at man, nature and the earth and reveals that doing nothing is the only way to save the planet. It contains various features by - Richard Benson on growing a wild flower meadow; Noted Gaia scientist, Stephen Harding on why we need to stop interfering with nature; 'On a Green Note - The new folk movement' by Will Hodgkinson; Alan Moore on the Green Man in history and legend; Cosmic Gardening Mark Manning is blown away by Rudolf Steiner; The One-Straw Revolution - The legacy of Masanobu Fukuoka and his technique of "no-work farming", where you let nature take the strain; Growing Vegetables the Easy Way An idler's guide; John Michel on William Corbett; and Ukulele Special - all you need to know about the history of the uke, where to buy one, how to play it and why the uke is more punk than the guitar. This title contains all this, as well as tips for living the good life, with full colour illustrations and photography throughout.
