Ahimsa Farm was an independent, self-sustaining project founded by six Antioch College students whose purpose was to practice "aggressive pacifism." Most participants were members of the Fellowship of Reconciliation. Projects included desegregation of a Cleveland, Ohio swimming pool, and the Non-Violent Expeditionary Force to India.
