Forty years ago, at the height of the counterculture movement, several hundred hippies drove their school buses into southern Tennessee and founded one of America’s largest, modern day intentional communities, The Farm. In its hey-day, the community was home to over 1,500 optimistic young people and the young at heart.
Their purpose for coming together was to support each other in a quest for personal growth and an alternative lifestyle that could help raise the standard of living for impoverished people around the world.
The Farm remains a vibrant working environment for change. Why has it lasted so long? Discover the answers as members past and present become the voices for some of their more memorable experiences. This revised edition also includes many never-before published classic images from The Farm’s early years.
