"To Hasten the Good Time Coming"
Grange Motto

A traveling multimedia exhibit about the Grange movement in America. This is a multi-media show that delves into the stories, personal narratives, and social logistics of a movement unfurling across the American landscape. 

Grange Future is a project of The Greenhorns, a radical network of young farmers, cultural workers with a mission to promote, support and recruit the incoming generation of sustainable farmers and agrarians. We create media (film, radio, almanacs, anthologies, posters, pamphlets and art stunts) as well as community events to enliven the pathway into farming. with in-person networking, life-skills and unorthodox educational opportunities. We like bonfires and open-source farm technology.
