Greenhorns works to create a welcoming and hospitable culture for new entrants in sustainable agriculture. We have made films, radio, guidebooks, parties+trainings, almanacs, anthologies, song collections, exhibits, mixers, art-stunts and trans-media collaboratives that defy classification.
We are a community powered studio dedicated to grassroots media, cultural programming and land repair for the benefit of the human and non-human worlds.
Our various programs and projects address the practical and social concerns of those in their first years farming, we emphasize restorative land-practices, skill-building, networking and dialogue.

Greenhorns Summer Schedule 2020
Once again, Greenhorns presents a full summer schedule of educational and intersectional workshops and summer camp programming. Inspired by the present, historic and potential natural resource economies of Downeast Maine and rural New England, we bring you teachers on topics that rhyme with the territory. We invite you to plan a trip Downeast, visit the wonderful state parks and rivers, see the whales and the eagles, the historic civic architecture, the old canneries, the wide abundant inter-tidal and incredible avian and aquatic abundance. You’ll be glad to know there is no traffic beyond Ellsworth.
Greenhorns welcome short term work-traders to help out in the summer months. You can email us email@example.com with a resume/ letter of interest. We offer room and board for 4 hours focused work per day on various farm tasks, chores, library tasks, restoration of our buildings, clearing of trails, painting, weeding, harvesting/ processing herbs + seaweed etc.
