NOFA Virtual Summer Conference July 20 – August 9, 2020

Due to the continued recommendations for physical distancing to control the spread of COVID-19, we have decided to cancel the in-person conference and move to an online experience spread out over three weeks.

With this massive undertaking we need YOUR HELP to spread the word and bring even more people together for this conference! We would greatly appreciate you taking the time to support our event and encouraging your network to register through your email communications, Zoom conversations, and ESPECIALLY on social media.

ABOUT THE NOFA SUMMER CONFERENCE

The NOFA Summer Conference is a solutions-oriented annual celebration of the grassroots organic movement. Gardeners, farmers, growers and food-lovers from across the Northeast come together to 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. A 46-year long tradition moves online this year but will still be the uplifting, informative and community building event it has always been!

ABOUT NOFA

The Northeast Organic Farming Association is a non-profit organization of over 5,000 farmers, gardeners, landscape professionals and consumers working to advocate for and educate about healthy food, organic growing practices, agricultural justice, and a cleaner environment.

NOFA has regional chapters in Connecticut, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, Rhode Island and Vermont.
