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.

A Digital Magazine & Podcast For The Intrepid Young Farmer

Watch the first episode of our new series EARTHLIFE, exploring the landscape, looking upstream, downriver and out to sea to discover the destiny of our home region. Alongside our films, we've created a multimedia learning-experience with audio interviews, articles, out-links, archival and contemporary materials that inform an approach to ecological farming, rural enterprise and coalition building.
