On Tuesday, November 13 we’ll be showing the critically acclaimed documentary The Greenhorns, the 2012 Pam Troxell Memorial Film. As the films website reads: The Greenhorns documentary film, completed after almost 3 years in production, 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.
To learn more about the film and the greater movement it represents, go to www.thegreenhorns.net.
But wait there’s more. We’re not just showing the film, we’re also holding a farm mixer complete with a local food meal (pulled pork and three vegan/gluten-free sides) beginning at 6 p.m. The cost for the meal is $10 per person. It’s a great chance to connect with the farmers in our community, both old and new. Chat. Share a meal. Ask questions. Find out where your food is coming from.
Then, we’ll show the film at 7:30 p.m. ($5 per person) followed by a farming panel discussion immediately following the film. Join us for this evening of film, farming and conversation. It’s going to be a great one. The event is also sponsored by the Chequamegon Food Coop.
See you at the movies.
