Our mission, as a small grass-roots nonprofit based in the Hudson Valley of New York, is to support, promote and recruit young farmers in America.
Almost two years after its founding in a basement in Berkeley, California, The Greenhorns has matured from an idea for a recruitment film into a widespread national community. We are now happily rooted on my first commercial farm, Smithereen, on rented land in the Hudson Valley of New York. In the autumn of 2007 we officially began seeking out mentors and characters for a film, traveling the country with a confident intuitive sense of an emerging movement of young farmers and a series of borrowed cameras and generous cinematographers.

Nomad Labs is a collection of developers, scientists and artists, from different parts of the world, working together using the Internet as a tool for communication and collaboration. Just as our diverse backgrounds, our interests and expertise are also diverse, but we share a love of the open source community, and try to give back what we have learned from them. But most importantly we are passionate about new emerging technologies and finding ways of helping businesses use them.
Our mission is to innovate and build the GeoWeb through community standards, collaborative tools, and open data.
”…as designers we have tools and knowledge to create functional, sustainable solutions for a better social, economic, political environment. The organizational skills that come along with being a designer in terms of planning are such a resource. It is time NOW to put them to good use and offer our skills to groups that are working HARD towards a better world."
