Loch Sheldrake, NY (September 1, 2011) – Make plans attend the FREE movie screening of the young farmer documentary "The Greenhorns," as well as a market of local farm items and advocacy groups at SUNY Sullivan. The event will take place in the Seelig Theater and its lobby on Thursday, September 22, from 2:30 pm until 6:30 pm, with on the following schedule:
2:30 pm: Local farmers will offer farm products for sale. Regional advocacy organizations will share local food resources.
4:30 pm: Screening of "The Greenhorns" inside the Seelig Theatre.
5:30 pm: Panel discussion featuring young local farmers and Patrick Kiley of The Greenhorns project. Moderated by Challey Comer from Pure Catskills. Taking part will be Sara & Brett Budde, Greg Swartz, Adrianne Picciano, Majestic Farms, Willow Wisp Organic Farm, The Dirt Diva.
The Greenhorns documentary film, completed after almost 3 years in production, explores the lives of America's young farming community – its spirit, practices, and needs. 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, to entice them, and to recruit them into farming.

This event will be hosted by the Gardening Club of SUNY Sullivan and the Watershed Agricultural Council. It is FREE and open to the public. For more information, contact Kathy Scullion at (845) 434-5750 (ext. 4447), or by email to email@example.com.
