Humboldt Today with John Kennedy O'Connor
Recent GQ Magazine Article Subject Richard Evans on the Back to the Land Movement, Stained Glass and Why He's Still a Hippie Idealist
Last week Humboldt was featured prominently in a lengthy article by GQ Magazine — for something other than weed, if you can believe it! The piece, “The Last Glimpses of California’s Vanishing Hippie Utopias,” takes the reader on a tour of some of the aging and forgotten communes manifested by the generation of idealists associated with what we know nowadays as the back to the land movement.
These days Richard Evans makes his home in the metropolis of Eureka, but back in the early ‘70s he and his cohorts fled the Bay Area for a more idyllic communal existence on a property in far-flung Southern Humboldt. On this week’s episode of Humboldt Holding Up — LoCO’s always-idealistic podcast — Evans shares with us his recollections of his back-to-the-lander days.
