In addition to being the director for GreenStart, Dorn is also a farmer working the 250-acre family farm in Lee. He has designed and constructed systems for small-scale grain and oil seeds processing and biofuel production, worked to select effective cover crops, grains and oilseed for food and energy production, and has developed no-till and low-till equipment to reduce energy use and increase soil health in New Hampshire conditions.

Dorn is also a founding member of Farm Hack, the New England Farmers’ Union, the Great Bay Grain Cooperative, the Oyster River Biofuel Initiative, and he serves as a Vice President of the New Hampshire Association of Conservation Districts. He has a B.S. from Cornell University and is a PhD candidate at the University of New Hampshire, developing open source agricultural research and development systems to improve farm productivity and resilience.
