Sustainable Cinema series features
The Greenhorns
The documentary was created by The Greenhorns, a national grassroots nonprofit organization of young farmers. Their much-anticipated documentary will be shown in Port Orchard as part of a Northwest tour to premier the film

(Port Orchard, WA)  The 2011-12 Kitsap County Sustainable Cinema Series continues on Thursday, October 27, with a showing of ‘The Greenhorns’ at the historic Dragonfly Cinema in downtown Port Orchard at 6:30 p.m.

‘The Greenhorns’ is an inspiring film about young farmers in America. It is making its way across the Northwest this fall, from small town independent theatres to college campuses.
This documentary film, completed after almost three years in production, explores the lives of America's young farming community. It is the filmmaker's hope 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 and to recruit them into farming.

The film’s director, Severine von Tscharner Fleming, will be available for questions and discussion following the film.

Tickets are $10 per person and are available on-line at www.brownpapertickets.com.

The film runs 50 minutes and refreshments will be available for purchase.

The Sustainable Cinema Series, sponsored by Kitsap County Commissioner Charlotte Garrido, was created to stimulate discussions about sustainable living.

For more information, please contact Aimee Gordon Warthen, District 2 Liaison to Commissioner Garrido, at 360.337.7097.
