When Richard Brautigan published Please Plant This Book , a collection of eight poems printed on seed packets housed within a folder, he was ensuring that both art and food were accessible to all. The Diggers wanted a society free of private property, and while Brautigan was making seeds— and therefore food— more accessible, he was also self publishing, writing for Rolling Stone , and recording spoken-word albums for The Beatles.

Richard Brautigan hovered around the Diggers like a butterfly that a reader might expect to see flutter out of one of his novels that would soon propel his name into the pantheon of famous-before-their-time writers and artists who streak across the horizon of our times. Richard was attracted to the Communication Company as a true example of what Marshall McLuhan described as "medium is the message". The instant news service, sometimes publishing "new sheets" every hour, provided a perfect outlet for Richard's prolific poetry. Even though Richard was intimately involved in the Digger experience, he was both a Digger and not at the same time. When Sam and I visited him in to ask for his help in collecting an archive of Communication Company sheets, it seemed that he was disdainful of two dirty communards blocking his view of the street from his favorite table at Enrico's coffee house in North Beach.
