Long story short, a new generation of farmers (urban and otherwise) are dramatically changing the way we source our food here in the United States, and the Greenhorns have been in on the ground floor for quite some time. This Thursday night, please join us for a screening of their eponymous documentary, followed by a panel discussion – featuring participants from the Brooklyn Grange, Battery Urban Farm and the Fort Greene Park Conservancy Vegetable Garden. Doors are at 7pm; more information is available here.
Completed after nearly three years in production, The Greenhorns explores the lives of America’s young farming community – its spirit, practices, and needs. It is the filmmaker’s hope that by broadcasting the stories and voices of these young farmers, we can build the case for those considering a career in agriculture – to embolden them, to entice them, and to recruit them into farming.
