The Diggers were one of the legendary groups of San Francisco's 60's counterculture, taking their name from the original English Diggers (1649-50) who promulgated a vision of society free from private property, and all forms of buying and selling. The Diggers combined street theater, anarcho-direct action, and art happenings in their social agenda of creating a Free City. Their most famous activities revolved around distributing Free Food every day in the Park, and distributing "surplus energy" at a series of Free Stores (where everything was free for the taking).
