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.

  • KROKA Kayak Expeditions in Downeast Maine

    July 10 2022 - July 23 2022  

  • 5th World Agroforestry Conference

    July 17 2022 - July 20 2022  
    Quebec City, QC, Canada

    On July 17th-20th, 2022, in Québec City, Canada, as well as in virtual mode, will be held the 5th World Congress on Agroforestry: Transitioning to a Viable World. This congress, organized by the Université Laval, in partnership with the International Union for Agroforestry (IUAF) and the International Centre for Research in Agroforestry (ICRAF), will be an opportunity to stimulate an open and inclusive dialogue between various stakeholders from around the world including farmers, researchers, advisors, policy makers, and representatives from the government, the civil society and the private sector.

    Considering agroforestry participates in enhancing soil health, protecting water quality, increasing biodiversity, mitigating and adapting to climate change, and providing food security, health and revenues, it is an essential component of the needed ecological, energetic, social and economic transition. This critical transition can and must be achieved through a participatory collaboration process that helps building bridges between research, policy decisions and field work.

    The 5th World Congress on Agroforestry will help creating or strengthening those connections by promoting knowledge sharing for a transition to a unified and healthy world.

    The call for abstracts to participate in the 5th World Congress on Agroforestry 2022: Transitioning to a Viable World is still open for posters presented in the form of either a printed poster displayed on-site or of a short video; the deadline has been extended to February 28, 2022! Click here to submit an abstract.

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.
