A community of more than 5000 young farmers and
activists, the members of Greenhorns -
a grassroots non-profit founded in 2007 by Severine von Tscharner Fleming - are committed to producing and advocating for
food grown with vision and respect for the earth. A new book, edited by
Fleming and two more of the group’s leading members, comprises 50 original essays by
new farmers who write about their experiences in the field from a wide
range of angles, both practical and inspirational.
On Friday, April 27th at 6:30 pm, Severine von Tscharner Fleming will visit Phoenix Books and Cafe in Essex to discuss Greenhorns: 50 Dispatches from the New Farmers' Movement
and the organization that inspired it.
Severine von Tscharner Fleming farms in the Hudson Valley of New York.
She is founder and director of Greenhorns, an organization that works
nationally to promote, support, and recruit young farmers. Severine
cofounded the National Young Farmers’ Coalition and directed the
documentary film The Greenhorns.
This event is free and open to the public. Copies of Greenhorns will be available for attendees to purchase and have signed by Fleming.
