Event Description

What happens when you follow young farmers around for 3 years? A film that not only inspires but facilitates action!

Join us in the Lower Mainland premier screening of The Greenhorns, whose mission is to recruit, promote, and support young (and not so young) farmers.

The Greenhorns organization was founded in Berkeley in 2007 by Severine von Tscharner Fleming. Recently graduated and fresh from several seasons of apprenticeship adventures, Severine began filming young farmers with friends from “"King Corn" and fellow documentarians. A rotating team of soil enthusiasts, filmmakers, tech ninjas, artists, graphic designers, cartographers, and hustling interns took shape. In 2008-09 Greenhorns were based on leased land in New York's Hudson Valley (growing/raising organic veggies and herbs + flowers, Muscovy ducks, chickens, rabbits and Tamworth pigs)
