Abstract 

In this article, the author reports that even after boycotts of and sanctions put on Koinonia Farms because of their racial inclusiveness, that Koinonia Farms is prospering with thirty inhabitants, and hundreds of thousands of dollars at their disposal. The citizens of Americus, Georgia were opposed to the farm’s acceptance of black people, and as a response, they shot guns at the farm, and boycotted the produce grown on the farm. But the people at Koinonia maintained their strong beliefs in inclusiveness. The author goes on to explain quotidian life at the farm including their residences, their daily noontime meal, and their daily work.
