BAR HARBOR, ME-America’s young farming community will be celebrated at a showing of “The Greenhorns,” a movie about the current numbers of young people who have taken up farming. The screening will be on Friday, April 15 at 7 p.m. in the college’s Gates Community Center.

The film will be introduced by Severine von Tscharner Fleming of the Smithereen Farm in New York. Following the film will be a panel of young farmers including the manager of COA’s Beech Hill Farm, Alisha Strater, von Tscharner Fleming and others.

“The Greenhorns” is a documentary exploring the spirit, practices, and needs of the many young people who have moved back to the land in the last decade. According to information about the film, it is the hope of the filmmaker’s “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.” For more information on the film, visit http://www.thegreenhorns.net/.
