The Do-Nothing Movement

Shaykha Sharqi recently read Masanobu Fukuoka's The Natural Way of Farming, a sequel to his One-Straw Revolution. She kept reading me sections from it that we both loved. Fukuoka-sensei is a Yoda of gardening, deeply rooted in the Source.

"Man created with his own hands the need for labor and toil."

"To achieve a humanity and a society where nothing needs to be done, man must look over everything he has done and rid himself one by one of th efalse visions and concepts that permeate him and his society. This is what the "do nothing" movement is all about."
