PUNK YEOMAN : the past and future of the Grange
Join Greenhorns founder Severine Von Tscharner Fleming and evangelist Jen Griffith for a lively evening of learning as we focus on the past and future of modern farming, in their presentation "Grange Future."
Grange Future is a community history project undertaken by The Greenhorns, a young farmers network, to help interpret both the past and future of the Grange, not in a nostalgic or abstract way, but as an appropriate institutional format for contemporary users who are concerned with rebuilding our food system. For today's young farmers the grange is a kind of syllabus in community-scale organizing, regional development, cooperative economics and kinship-based policy advocacy.
Come learn about the past and more recent history of the Grange, the controversy with California State Grange halls and the GMO labeling, and the revival across the country of farmer-driven educational, social, charitable, and political uses of Grange halls, Grange kitchens, and the Grange idea.
We look forward to a spirited discussion with the audience, including some local Grange Masters about the prospects and road ahead. Following the presentation we'll have a social hour of mixing and mingling!
Grange Future is a project of the Greenhorns, which includes visual and textual research of its history and exploration of the current grange scene. Grange Future is intended as an organizing site, with click-art, activity templates, and interpretation on using the Grange as a place of action!
