47th NOFA Summer Conference Survey & Request for Proposals
By Jason Valcourt, NOFA Summer Conference Coordinator
We are looking forward to celebrating NOFA’s 50th Anniversary with you. Yes, NOFA’s 50th Anniversary! What this celebration will actually look like is still up in the air. With such uncertainty of what summer 2021 will bring, we have begun planning a hybrid version of the NOFA Summer Conference for August 6-8, 2021. We are watching closely as the COVID situation unfolds, minding state guidelines and monitoring public safety recommendations so that we can gather virtually and/or in person this year. Whatever format we end up choosing, the NOFA Summer Conference will bring farmers and gardeners together from throughout the region to share experience and knowledge with you this summer.
