History and Curiousities

The Farm: Stephen Gaskinís project began in 1970 and is still going on, though many of the principals have left. I had a brief experience with the Farm in the seventies when a group attempted to started a branch of it in Fulton, Missouri. Two good friends and their daughter ended up moving down there and I never saw them again. Our lives just parted.

 

Anyway, itís a very interesting place. Check out the site.
