This button features a white field with black lettering, “Free Vermont 1984,” and a stenciled flower, representing the Free Vermont Collective, an organization of communes and farms in rural Vermont. Some of the projects initiated by the organization include a People’s Bank as a way to redistribute communal wealth; a local newspaper; and several restaurants that used food raised on Vermont commune farms.
