The newest eclectic compendium on all things farming, from The Greenhorns

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. We have the answers, and we know it. In these pages, dozens of contributing writers and artists report from the seas, the borders, the woods, the fields, and the hives. Farmers, poets, agro-ecologists; grocers, researchers, gardeners; activists, agitators, photographers—all join forces to re-vision the future of land use. This is our Grand Land Plan.

The solutions unfurl before us. First, recovery: farmers and food networks reflect on local resiliency and logistics from the time of COVID-19. Next, resistance: we invite readers to consider arguments for land reform, for the localization of food systems, for policy change at the border and on the farm, for solidarity and sovereignty. We share reporting on restoration projects: from interstate roadsides to intertidal zones to our civic institutions. There are lessons from honeybees. Designs for the seaweed commons and for sanctuary. Together, these thinkers turn their—and our—attention to the long future.

The New Farmer’s Almanac is a large-scale inquiry both visual and literary. Along with words, readers will find maps of soil, x-rays of seeds, aerial photographs, farm comics, illustrations from the archives, and dozens of other curiosities. Join us in exploring principles and strategies for just, adaptive, resourceful, and responsive land use for all.

Since 2008 Greenhorns has been dedicated to grass-roots media in support of the incoming generation of young farmers. We produce films, books, educational programming and trans-media happenings.
