The Down and Dirty Movement to Reinvent Farming
Declining food quality, degraded farmland, an aging population of farmers, and an increasingly tight hold on food production by corporations have inspired a growing movement: The Greenhorns showcases how young farmers are getting down and dirty, learning how to farm outside the industrial agriculture model.
"The movement is for real. Its practitioners are skilled, savvy and ferocious. They are assets to their community and guarantors of our future." — Severine von Tscharner Fleming, www.thegreenhorns.net
