Sunday, September 25 from 12 PM - 5 PM (upstate NY)
Agrarian Acts, presented by NACL and The Greenhorns.  
Come one, come all, to Agrarian Acts-- a contemporary county fair celebrating the multifarious ideas, enterprise, and creative work of a New Generation of Farmers. The day’s events will include a screening of the new film The Greenhorns, live performances by NACL, the children’s storyCornplosion! by Carly and Scott Sell, and The Vagabond's Vaudeville by Charlie Traeger. Throughout the day, view photographic art by young farmers, hear Kurt Knuth and friends delight with bluegrass and old timey music; learn how to build a small greenhouse, how to make saurkraut, and face paint from natural dyes.
Take workshops on stilt walking, perma-culture, and learn seed saving with the Dirt Diva. Sing work songs from around the world; be entertained and enlightened by Speakers’ Soap Box, compete in the lettuce-eating contest; and hug a piglet from Majestic Farm.  Meet and learn more about farm and food organizations like The Greenhorns, Pure Catskills, and Shop Local/Save Land.  You can even barter your garden produce at a Crop Swap on the lawn. The day kicks off at 12 noon with NACL’s The Little Farm Show and a potluck lunch (bring some food to share).
Activities continue until 5 PM. Sponsored in part by Pure Catskills.  A full and detailed schedule will soon become available. This is an event for everyone.
