The GREENHORNS believe we humans must reform agriculture to survive on this planet. Our mission is to create a welcoming cultural space and a practical professional resource for those new to ecological farming. We make books, films, radio, parties, symposia, workshops, networking and online curriculum. We are based in rural Maine where we farm and host campers, researchers, media producers, artists and collaborators. Our community is the international movement of LA VIA CAMPESINA. Our activism helps us express our solidarity with future generations and the non-human world. Come! We can do it together.

  • Draft Animal Power Field Days

    September 30 2022 - October 2 2022  
    7097 Sanborn Rd, Loudon, NH 03307, USA

    The 2022 Draft Animal Power Field Days (DAPFD) will be once again held at the beautiful Sanborn Mills Farm in Loudon, NH. We will be returning to a 3-day schedule, intensive workshops on Friday September 30th, with our block programs and activities on Saturday and Sunday October 1st and 2nd.  The DAPFD committee is working on presenters, schedules and logistics for this year's event, we will be updating the website soon with more information and registration. Please consider becoming a a member or a sponsor at any level of support. 

    We need your help!

    The DAPFD committee is looking for additional members to join our team.  In addition to seeking input and help planning we are also seeking coordinator volunteers to take on some responsibility leading up to and at the 2022 DAPFD. Coordinators need to be able to participate in Zoom meetings and show up in person at DAPFD. We are still seeking a Teamster Coordinator and Volunteer coordinator. Coordinators will be given admission to the event, meals, and merchandise. These positions are a great way to get to know more people in our organization and get a foot in the door of our culture if you aren’t already. 

    The Teamster Coordinator will be tasked with organizing our teamsters, being a liaison between the committee and the teamsters, organizing what teamsters and equipment are needed for each part of our schedule, keeping teamsters and committee updated with changes and keeping teamsters on schedule. 

    The Volunteer Coordinator will be tasked with collecting volunteer info, scheduling and assigning volunteers tasks, updating the committee and volunteers as needed, and trouble shoot as needed. Volunteers will be working at registration/info area, parking, camping, field and forest helpers, and signage. 

    Thank you for considering to join our team and to help make DAPFD 2022 the best that it can be! Interested in volunteering at our event or becoming a Coordinator? Contact David Gibaldi, DAPFD and Events Committee Chairperson, at [email protected].

THE New Farmers Almanac

Order now: Vol V

The New Farmer’s Almanac, Vol. V is an antidote to the repeating story of helplessness in the face of climo-politico-econo-corona-chaos. In these pages, dozens of contributing writers and artists report from the seas, the borders, the woods, the fields, and the hives. Farmers, poets, grocers, gardeners, architects, activists, agitators—all join forces to re-vision the future of food systems and land use. This is our Grand Land Plan.
