About Greenfriar

Greenfriar.com was an Internet magazine we operated from March through June of 2014. The site’s mission was summed up by its slogan, borrowed from desert bard Edward Abbey: “It is not enough to fight for the land; it is even more important to enjoy it.” The archives of the Greenfriar web magazine are kept here for anyone who wants to enjoy good writing about the joys of exploring and protecting the world we have.

It’s not the first evolution of Greenfriar, and is unlikely to be the last: Back in the spring of 2012, two guys in Joshua Tree put on green friar’s robes and protested an unwanted chain store planned for the small desert town’s funky main street. The short essay called “Monks on the Desert Highway” tells that part of the story.
