Biography

American social activist, the founder of "Plenty," a project of relief and assistance to the poor in the South Bronx, Guatemala and other locations. His organization was called the most efficient and effective charity in the world at the time. It was started in 1970 by Gaskin with 250 hippy friends in yellow school busses. Their communal farm was the basis for self sufficiency that was aided by food drives in local cities.

Gaskin is the author of a number of books including "Mind at Play," and "Rendered Infamous." He is the recipient of the 1980 Right Livelihood Award in Stockholm, Sweden.
