The Greenhorns

The Greenhorns is a non-traditional grassroots non-profit organization made up of young farmers and a diversity of collaborators. Our mission is to recruit, promote and support the new generation of young farmers. We do this by producing avant-garde programming, video, audio, web content, publications, events, and art projects that increase the odds for success and enhance the profile and social lives of America’s young farmers.

The news is in from urban, suburban and rural districts alike: America needs more young farmers and more young farmers want a piece of America. It will take millions of rough and ready protagonists of place to care for our ecosystems and serve our country healthy food in the years to come. The Greenhorns enable this critical meeting of minds, bodies, and land by helping young and aspiring farmers to navigate career paths, build skills, and connect with each other. Our multifaceted approach includes on-the-ground organizing of events and workshops, media production, and online coalition building.

interesting. worth consideration.

maybe four categories would be.
- Farming Practices (plants, animals, land and people management)
- Fabrication (equipment fab and maintenance, building fab and maintenance, metal work, machines and carpentry)
- Electronics, from circuits to solar panels
- Open-source, online collaboration, and Farm Hack website

i'm not sure what you meant when you said "FOUR amounts of tabs" does that mean 5 headings under each of the categories? or FOUR categories under each of the headings?

re: blog roll
i think a curated area is okay as long as it's clear it's curated. there is an uncurated area as well. ??

onward!
