April Community Film & Forum: Young Farmers & Their Stories of Success & Learning

Join Sustainable West Seattle at our next Community Forum  for a screening of The Greenhorns,  Monday, April 16 7:00 pm to 9:00 pm at the Senior Center of West Seattle.

The film explores the lives of America’s young farming community – their spirit, practices, and needs. The filmmakers hope that by broadcasting the stories and voices of these young farmers, a case can be made for those considering a career in agriculture.  The film aims to embolden America’s young farmers, to entice them, and to recruit them into farming.

Following the film, SWS will have  a panel discussion comprised with new farmers who will tell their stories of success and learning.  We’re focusing on urban farmers who have made a go at making this a career in the Seattle and Puget Sound areas.

Panelists include:

Becky Warner of City Grown Farms

Clarice Swanson of Blue Valley Meats

This film presentation is sponsored by LocalTools.org.

SWS will be hosting an organic seed sale before and after the forum. Price will be one dollar ($1) for each organic seed packet, with proceeds benefiting the Community Orchard of West Seattle. After the forum go home and start planting.
