2016 NOFA Keynoters

Dr. Natasha Campbell-McBride Dr. Christine Jones is an internationally-acclaimed agricultural educator with a specific message regarding sequestration of carbon and humus development through appropriate agricultural practices. According to Dr. Jones, photosynthesis operating at full capacity is the critical element in soil humification. Among the many benefits of high-humus soils are: an abundance of soil micro-organisms which manage and make available to the plants a broad range of minerals; more effective water management; and more vibrant plant health through improved plant immunity. Dr. Jones' work focuses on how to maximize photosynthesis through biological processes. Her message is appropriate for anyone who raises food, for those who focus on conserving our natural resources, and for climate activists. Read More

Read the full workshop program from the 2015 NOFA Summer Conference, which featured 144 individual sessions with 27 different topic areas. Workshops addressed organic farming, gardening, land care, draft animals, homesteading, sustainability, nutrition, food politics, activism, and more. The theme was is "Healing the Climate, Healing Ourselves: Regeneration through Microbiology".

There were five pre-conference intensives, an all-day seminar given by Natasha Campbell-McBride, on the healing potential of food for overcoming chronic illness. Keynote, Ronnie Cummins spoke on "Reversing Global Warming & Rural Poverty through Regenerative Organics".

Each year, we offer educational and fun workshops designed for kids and teens where children bond with others throughout the Northeast while parents attend workshops and the plenaries.

This is an event for the whole family: Music, dance, films, games, animal rides, and meet-ups. Modest registration, inexpensive dorm rooms, camping and delicious, wholesome organic meals.
