Severine von Tscharner Fleming | Litfest A Food and Drinks Literacy Festival at Ballymaloe

Severine is the executive director of Greenhorns, she has been an organizer and cultural worker within the young farmer movement for almost 10 years, proud co-founder of National Young Farmers coalition, FarmHack and Agrarian Trust, a part-time farmer, and board member of the Schumacher Center for New Economics.

Her work has spanned many media to celebrate, bundle and broadcast the voices and life-ways of young agrarians from films, radio, blog gossip, guidebooks, an anthology, 3 new farmers almanacs, to a mix tape and vinyl record! This trans-media work is designed to connect individuals within the broader community of action, helping to orient the work on the land, career, stamina and interpretation of place-based possibilities.

The mission of the Greenhorns is to promote, recruit and support the rising generation in organic agriculture. Greenhorns is based on Lake Champlain in Westport, New York, a 360 mile sail-boat ride from NYC.
