Communes don’t last they say. They’re associated with good-for-nothing idealists or sex and drug crazed maniacs! This myth-busting tour by a veteran takes you from war-time pacifist land groups right through to hippie communes showing that communal living actually provided a viable way of life for thousands in the latter half of the 20th century.
