Greenhorns Reading and Book Signing
Friday, April 27
6:30 PM
Essex Junction, Vermont

Greenhorns movement leader, film director, and book editor Severine von Tscharner Fleming – along with young farmer and contributing essayist Justin Heilenbach – will host a Greenhorns book reading and signing event at Phoenix Books tonight in Essex Junction, VT.

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.
