“The Greenhorns: New Farmers in America,” is a new film by Severine von Tscharner Fleming. It will be shown free of charge, and after the film Roger Cohee, the chair of the Agriculture and Rural Affairs Committee of the City of Fitchburg, will give a brief explanation of their new program matching would-be farmers with landowners who will rent land to them. There will also be small group discussions led by representatives from all the groups sponsoring this event, (MACSAC: Madison Area Community Supported Agriculure Coalition, Madison Waldorf School, Sustain Dane, Trautman Family Farm, and Voss Organics) to give you a chance to explore the topics that the film brings up. The program will end by 8:50 p.m.
