Local organic farmers the focus in ‘The Greenhorns’


LIVINGSTON MANOR, NY — There will be a screening of a new film, “The Greenhorns,” preceded by a “Farmer’s Market” event of food and wine tastings by local growers, restaurants and shops, at the Catskill Art Society (CAS) Center on Saturday, March 25 starting at 6:30 p.m.

“The Greenhorns” documents the rise of a surprising phenomenon: the movement of young people choosing to become organic farmers. The Hudson Valley-based filmmakers are working farmers themselves, examples of sustainable agriculture as a positive vision for the future of upstate New York. Farmers featured in the film will be present at the screening. Visit www.thegreenhorns.net.
