almanacs are here!

Our new Farmer’s Almanac has arrived!

In many hands already, almanac2015
It should be in yours!
Please check out our Etsy store for purchasing options.

The weather is unpredictable.
Spring is early.
Spring is late.
Hope Springs eternal.
Get an Almanac silly billy!

It’s a fun-as-heck miscellany of scar-tissue, life-slalom, and agrarian technology.

Steve Sprinkel, a local farm luminary from Farmer and The Cook in Ojai, CA says:

“The new wave resurgence in organic farming (SHOULD) interest editors at The New York Times, The Des Moines Register, Conde Nast Traveler and John Deere Tractor’s The Furrow magazine.

They’ll all want a copy of the Greenhorn’s recently published 2015 New Farmer’s Almanac because this tidy journal reveals why so many kids are heading back to the land. The Almanac trumpets their successes and confesses their failures. Their hopes and plans, observations, dreams and art have been dug and washed, laid in glowing, handy rows that make for a reader’s simple harvest. Find out why our perfectly intelligent youth are drawn to harsh, poorly-compensated labor performed in inclement weather: they believe you deserve something good. Community is calling”.

It has a lot going for it, 344 pages in total, locally printed, lovingly laid out, and ready for you.

Buy a box of them and sell them!

we need your skills!

Hi there Greenhorns blog community.Screen shot 2014-04-09 at 3.06.51 PM
Things are moving fast and furious in the Greenhorns basement kitchen.
Yes, we have many projects. We have about sixteen pots on the stove, some on a copper bottomed double boiler with wise, experienced cooks, some with only a thrift-store aluminum pot, half-watched by young interns. Its a loud kitchen!  And there is hot strawberry jam on the tips of all our noses. All of us are working within our own social networks to find the various and multiple skills we need to carry out each grassroots media project, from web-skills, to cinematography, to audio, to graphics, to animations, to fulfillment… It takes this many cooks, and all their friends and former art-school room-mates to pull off this feast.

almanac history!

IT WAS A CLEAR AND MOONLIT NIGHT, claimed the witness, and shortly before midnight he saw the defendant load a rock into his slingshot, take aim, and strike his victim right above the eye, killing him.

An excited buzz went up from the courtroom at this testimony; now it was up to the accused man’s lawyer, a tall, gangly man dressed all in black, as lawyers often did in the mid-1800s, to refute this testimony. A look of puzzlement settled over the gaunt attorney’s face as he approached the jury box, holding up a book with which they were all familiar.

The witness for the prosecution, he reminded the jury, had just sworn under oath that he could see everything in detail that night, since the moon was overhead, illuminating the fields below. Yet according to the book he held in his hand, explained the lawyer, that couldn’t have happened; the woods would have been pitch black all night, as the moon was in its first quarter, and had set shortly before midnight, more precisely, at 11:57 p.m. Continue reading
