Anarchy and allotments! Cakes and ale!

“Long live beauty, truth and William Morris! Hail William Blake and Samuel Johnson! Bow down before William Cobbett, Robin Hood, and all defenders of liberty! Anarchy and allotments! Cakes and ale!”

Tom Hodgkinson celebrates the new issue of the Idler, which was released yesterday. This one is subtitled ‘back to the land’ and you can pick it up from a bookshop or from the Idler website.

While I’m plugging the Idler, Tom is running a weekend course this summer with permaculture teacher Graham Burnett. It’s called Ditch Your Day Job, and it’s at the legendary Dial House, a hotbed of punk thought, art and gardening.
