In Denmark, 1978, a group of some 100 people who wished to establish a living and working commune bought a large farm. As of 1990, there are about 100 adults and 60 children living at 'Svanholm'. They live in groups of from five to twenty-five in buildings that are spread about the farm. Each person has his or her own room, while the group has a common kitchen and sitting-rooms. Meals are generally communal, with washing up and general cleaning on a rota basis. Most adults do agricultural work on ecological principles. Other activities include forestry, stock-raising, milling, production of wooden packaging gear, building, metal working, accounting, catering and child care. Most of these activities are aimed at self-sufficiency, but vegetables are also produced for sale. All income is pooled, and is used to cover common expenses, and everyone receives a fixed cash sum for personal use. Important economic decisions rest with weekly communal meetings (there is not voting system, but discussion to agreement), while smaller working groups have considerable freedom in day-to-day matters.
