The Greenhorns are a small radical group of young farmer activists. I first met the organizer of this group Severine v T Fleming at Slow Food's Terra Madre in Torino Italy a few years ago. 

Here is what the Greenhorns are about from Severine herself, the greenhorn in chief: 

"We produce events for young farmers and farm aspirants because we wish to support the boldness, the bravery of choosing agriculture as a career. We think that young farmers are particularly potent protagonists in the project of restoring our country-- they are powerful, but also vulnerable. Farming is hard, inadequately paid work. There are big risks, it is low status, it is a marginalizing activity.  These educational and celebrational events are our way of coming together and feeling our force." 

Here are some upcoming Greenhorns events: 

Rhode Island/ Newport+Providence Screenings - 6/17 and 6/18

Catskills NY/ Andes Hotel - 6/18

New York/ Clearwater Festival  - 6/18 and 6/19
