    it dates back from the early 90s – came about when the paths of urban ravers and hippies crossed when the first free/outdoor parties started.

    it means someone who tries (or aspires to/pretends to) live a “hippy” type of lifestyle in the vein of the 1970s/1980s “new age” type hippies – both weaving and yoghurt making are featured in all their “lifestyle books” of that era (such as country bazaar etc), hence the joke term…

    If you attended high school in the early to mid 1980s most of your teachers would have been from that generation, particularly those in the arts fields (although a surprising number of maths teachers were hippies as well)

    TBH most of the real hippies who actually do that stuff (rather than just talk about it) don’t seem to rave any more as they are too busy doing all their crafts and/or looking after babies/livestock etc..

    Its a term for those peace and love hippies you get who class activism as sitting in their cafes being vegan and discussing how much they do for the environment.

    They used to come visit site all the time and say they’d stay for weeks when really theyd come down for a couple hours talk about the spirit of the forest and how beautiful it is then leave when they realised there was no showers and the food came out of the bins.

    My old flatmate was the queen yoghurt weaver but we have her trained now and shes living on faslane and ou on actions oall the time now :weee:

    Although I did rig up a shower once out of an old trailer water pump and heater, a bottle of LPG and a car battery.

    Was pretty cool!

    It had been about 4 months since a proper wash….

    Thats just brought back a memory of another site I was on, cant remember where it was now..? Guilford I think.

    Someone had body lice and scabies, so we all ended up with body lice and scabies! We made a bonfire in the end, had to burn every piece of clothing we had, cover eachother in derbac and ended up taking a trip, it was mental, naked, white, stinking, itching tripping tree pixies!

    I always understood the phrase to be the 2nd definition provided by Urban Dictionary (Cheers GD)

    One who performs a fruitless task – you can weave yoghurt all day long and will be left with the same yoghurt you started with.

    The first question a lot of people ask is how we wash.

    Seems a bit of a silly question to ask someone who has mud caked into their trousers to the point where every night after work their trousers set like concrete.

    I still have my trousers I wore everyday on site (6months or so) in my room unwashed. Reminds me its not over. Though its mainly the smell tbh.

    They have a tear down each back pocket so its like wearing a denim g string now but its also far easier to climb in them. Also they have no knees or working pockets.

    I went to that Newbury thing a few times we did a big party there more of a mini fest realy. Alot of the folk there were sound but there was alot of Yogurt Weavers and people who were up there own bottoms.
    I cant understand why alot of them wanted to stink, when I lived on the road we showerd and bathed as often as we could and always had washes. The tree folk seemed to revel in being smelly…
    We also did a party for the Manchester runway protesters and I got shown the tunnels which was well cool. But me and my girl freind of the time got food poisoning and I got banned from going again. Even though we lived on a new age travelers site my lass said the tree people wernt hyginic enough so we wasnt going again.

    I know a load of people who were on Manchester airport. One of them also used to do a lot of travelling with his missus of the time and their big

    We don’t revel in being dirty it just seems pointless washing. If you wash you wake up the next day and climb downstairs and your already caked in mud and that green stuff you always get as soon as you touch a tree.

    As foir the food poisoning, you need a strong stomach to eat any meat on site. A lot of the food on sites is fregan and skip food without fridges isn’t exactly the most hygenic. If you live on site you tend to build up an immunity, but if you don’t vegan hippy slop is the best way to go. It even tastes alright most of the time.
