Join us for a free film screening, discussion panel and farmer mixer over delicious locally-produced food, drink and live music at Green Gate Farms’ urban farm (8310 Canoga Avenue, Austin, 78724).
Building on the success of “The Greenhorns,” her first documentary film about the hustle and entrepreneurial spirit of young American farmers, director Severine von Tscharner Fleming and teammates Jordan Kinley and Lucas Patzek happily announce the premiere of a new film project: Our Land. It a series of web films about the opportunities and players who are reorienting agriculture and confronting broken systems with brave and successful businesses. Each episode in the series introduces us to a practical protagonist in the new economy.
The Greenhorns is also a grassroots non-profit organization with a growing network of over 8,000 young and beginning farmers across America. Headquartered in Hudson, NY, we are happy to work nationally.
Finger foods will be prepared from locally-sourced ingredients by the students of Escoffier School of Culinary Arts in Austin. Drinks will include beer by New Belgium and seasonal cocktails by Paula’s Texas Spirits. Suggested $25-50 donation for those who can afford to support young farmers.
