According to Bonnie Jean Romney and Hugh Romney of Hog Farm and Sam Zambito of Drop City, the communes are like living with expanded families. Bonnie Jean Romney said that people are looking for alternative life styles or a better life or a meaningful truth. To earn money, the people pick apples or sell beads. They also work in construction or deconstruction.
