AUA will be hosting a special screening of the inspiring new documentary The Greenhorns at the Hideout on Sunday, February 12. From the Greenhorns organization’s website:

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.”

The screening will be followed by a moderated panel discussion and mixer. Local “greenhorns” and more experienced farmers, both rural and urban, will share their challenges, successes and advice with each other and the audience. Confirmed panelists include:
Kim Marsin and Rachel Reklau from Sweet Home Organics
Tracy Noel from Growing Home
Jody Osmund from Cedar Valley Sustainable Farm
Michael Thompson from Chicago Honey Co-op
