A new wave of farmers has taken to small plots of land throughout the country in the last several years, with large aspirations: to change how we grow our food. Inspired by different things — a college course, a study-abroad program, a novel — these young people have turned to agriculture intentionally to fix what they call “a broken system.”

In 2007, a group of farmers led by then-Berkeley student Severine von Tscharner Fleming became the Greenhorns, a national volunteer organization by and for young farmers, including activists and filmmakers who recorded their efforts in a documentary. The film aims to recruit, promote and support the new generation of young farmers in this ample and able 21st-century America.

Read our cover story about young local farmers here. Watch their stories and take part in the discussion with film director Severine von Tscharner Fleming tonight at 7:30 pm at the Kenworthy Performing Arts Center and on Nov. 5-6 at 7 pm at the Magic Lantern Theater.
