Onion: Hippie-Commune Organic Farms with Democratic, Nontheist Friends' Decision-Making Processes (without the list of U.S. Farms)

I'd love to help facilitate the expansion of the organic farming movement profoundly.

Why not create worldwide tax-incentives to increase the number of organic farms dramatically, especially as hippie communes?

Farms can be so abundant, can generate networks of sustainable communities, can be remarkable sites for innovation, as well as generate great work, and local economies.

Here's the Local Harvest list {} of family farms in the U.S. (December 2008).

This list of farms is on the previous blog entry here:

Organic farming, with long roots in the U.S. {e.g. in the 1930s, Robert Rodale started "Organic Gardening" -}, expanded dramatically in the 1960s and 1970s, leading to organic farming legislation and certification in the 1990s in the U.S.

Here's the International Federation of Organic Agriculture Movements web site - - which was started in 1972.

{Solar-heated hot pools on every farm which welcomes guest farm-workers, as well?}

An anthropology of hippy, communal, organic farms will be fascinating. Here's one I'm familiar with: - Alpha Farm.
