The Greenhorns is a documentary film about young farmers. These growers, including nearby heroes Atarus Fleming and Farm 255 of Athens, are bravely cultivating food, community, and a modern agrarianism in cities and in the countryside.
Severine Fleming, director and producer of the film, will be on site to answer questions and talk about the young punks, picklers, family farmers, cheesemongers, and growers who make up this movement. She is the founder of The Greenhorns, which has become a non-profit center for networking and activism -- publishing how-to manuals for beginner farmers, lobbying for policy change, hosting barn dances, managing a blog, a radio show, and much more.
If you're interested in youth movements, agriculture policy, DIY culture, or the future of our country, you will like this movie!
