Greenhorns Events

Our first two Greenhorns book events are coming up this weekend!
Friday, April 6
6:30 - 8:30 PM
in San Fransisco, California

Greenhorns movement leader and documentary filmmaker Severine von Tscharner Fleming will host this event at 18 Reasons — a San Francisco community center dedicated to bringing people together to deepen their relationships to food and to each other. The public is welcome to join Severine, fellow book editor and Greenhorns activist Paula Manalo, and farmer Brooke Budner for a film screening, discussion panel, book signing, and farmer mixer over delicious locally-produced food, drink, and live music.

Saturday, April 7
2:00 - 5:00 PM 
in Ukiah, California

Paula Manalo will lead a discussion on "Our Farming Future" at the Ukiah Natural Food Co-op's Annual Meeting. The event — with food and live music — will feature a screening of the documentary film The Greenhorns as well as book signing and sales.

Greenhorns: 50 Dispatches from the New Farmers' Movement will be available from Storey Publishing in May. In this new book – a companion piece to the documentary film The Greenhorns – editors and movement leaders Severine von Tscharner Fleming, Zoë Ida Bradbury, and Paula Manalo have assembled a wide range of stories that instruct as they inspire. With topics including financing, family, logistics, machinery, community building, and social change, Greenhorns helps young and aspiring farmers navigate career paths, build skills, and connect with each other while growing self-sufficient enterprises with conviction, vision, and respect for the earth. Filled with advice, anecdotes, and stories of life lessons learned, Greenhorns is a must-read not only for new farmers, but also for self-reliance enthusiasts and anyone interested in organic, locally grown food.
