2017 NOFA Summer Conference

August 11-13, 2017

Hampshire College, Amherst, Mass.

The NOFA Summer Conference is a three day solutions-oriented annual celebration of the grassroots organic movement. Gardeners, farmers, growers and food-lovers from across the Northeast will again share their inspiration and ideas for organic food, farming, health, activism, and beyond. With an array of workshops, seminars, exhibits, food and fun, learning becomes a community action.

This year we’re excited to return to Hampshire College. With plenty of free parking, trees for shade, close accommodations and Hampshire’s commitment to local, organic food sourcing and sustainability, this year’s conference will provide the inclusive close knit community atmosphere upon which NOFA was founded.

In addition to over 130 workshops and sessions on everything from soil health and food preservation to mushrooms, bees and food activism, the conference features annual favorites like the Children’s Conference, contra dance, film screenings, local dinner celebration, farm tours, exhibitors tent, and live music and drumming. This year will also feature a “Country Fair”, showcasing farm and garden innovations as well NOFA-VT’s wood-fired mobile pizza oven.

Building community and making connections is the best part of the conference. We want anyone and everyone excited about this gathering to be there, regardless of income. Scholarship opportunities are available, as are discounts for groups of five or more and multiple children from the same family. Early Bird registration deadline is July 25th!
