The GREENHORNS ARE COMING TO TOWN – MAY 19, 2016, Thursday, 7:30 pmYes, it’s our Third Thursday film and it’s at the Forest Grove Grange and it’s FREE (and so’s the popcorn, as always)!
Where we meet: 1917 “B” Street, what we discuss: how to support farming people to do their best work…continuously!
Who are The Greenhorns?: read on….
The Greenhorns is a non-traditional grassroots non-profit organization made up of young farmers and a diversity of collaborators. Our mission is to recruit, promote and support the new generation of young farmers. We do this by producing avant-garde programming, video, audio, web content, publications, events, and art projects that increase the odds for success and enhance the profile and social lives of America’s young farmers.
The news is in from urban, suburban and rural districts alike: America needs more young farmers and more young farmers want a piece of America. It will take millions of rough and ready protagonists of place to care for our ecosystems and serve our country healthy food in the years to come. The Greenhorns enable this critical meeting of minds, bodies, and land by helping young and aspiring farmers to navigate career paths, build skills, and connect with each other. Our multifaceted approach includes on-the-ground organizing of events and workshops, media production, and online coalition building.
