Frey (Freyr)'s Clique: The Ag Club

Frey is totally a member of the Ag club – he’s all about farming and agriculture. He and his peers spend a lot of time in the green house, the community garden, and take a lot of field trips to check out local farms. They’re pretty popular: sometimes they even grow enough fresh vegetables to give to kids in the cafeteria. As good as those rectangular pieces of pizza are (especially with ketchup), fresh food is way better, don't you think?

Chac

Chac is a Mayan god of agriculture, fertility, rain, and lightning. Usually, he appears as a reptile-looking dude with fangs, a turned up nose, teary eyes, and crazy, tangled hair. Like Frey, he deals with weather and agriculture: when Chac feels like it, there’s a lot of rain and crops sprout all over the place. However, when Chac decides it’s time for the dry season, everybody just has to wait it out. Most of the time, Chac is friendly to humanity; rumor has it he taught humans the art of agriculture.

Sif

Sif is the Norse goddess of grain and agriculture. She had a huge embarrassment when the trickster god, Loki, cut off all her hair while she was asleep. It turned out alright, though, because her BF, Thor, forced Loki to make her some new hair out of pure gold.
Some say that Sif’s golden hair represents golden fields of wheat. Check out the case file here. Wonder why Frey didn't go after her...?

Gaia

In Greek mythology, Gaia is the ancient goddess of the earth itself. (You might know her better as Mother Earth.) She is thought of as one of the oldest divine beings of them all, since she was one of the first to spring from Chaos, the empty void that existed before anything else. Legendary. Literally.

Demeter

Demeter (Ceres) is the goddess of agriculture, grain, and the harvest. The goddess taught the art of agriculture to Triptolemus, who then spread the knowledge to the rest of mankind. Wait, that sounds familiar. Yeah, a lot of the members of the Ag Club are in competition for who's to thank for agriculture. Tight race.

Xochipilli

Like Frey and Freyja, the deities Xochipili and his twin sister Xoxichquetzal are god and goddess of fertility and agriculture in the Aztec pantheon. As a patron of agriculture, Xochipilli is closely connected with the Aztec god of rain, paralleling Frey’s connection to the weather. In his capacity as "god of flowers," Xochipili was also associated with hallucinogenic drugs. Trippy.
