The Hippie Commune

The hippie subculture was originally a youth movement that began in the United States during the mid-1960s and spread around the world. The word hippie derives from hipster, and was initially used to describe people who created their own communities, listened to psychedelic rock, embraced the sexual revolution, and used drugs such as cannabis and LSD to explore alternative states of consciousness.


  1. We visited the Hog Farm. Members of the Hog Farm ran across me and my wife in a mountain hideaway in upstate NY just before their planned organization of Woodstock 69. We joined them to help set up. A few months later we visited them in new mexico. Talk about "high"...I don't know if it was the herb or the altitude but my wife actually fainted.

  2. Come visit the Sunnyridge Commune.
