Scholarships to the NOFA Summer Conference
 
More scholarship information will be available May 5th.

Each year we have the amazing opportunity to offer scholarships to our NOFA chapter members to attend the Summer Conference at a low or reduced cost through our Farming Education Scholarship Fund.

This fund is maintained through the kindness and generosity of our many donors and sponsors, including workshop Presenters, attendee donations, and our fundraisers, such as the annual Tea Cup Raffle and Post Conference Auction.
