In midst of continued pandemic, we at NOFA/Mass offer our annual Winter Conference virtually this year as a three-day informative, interactive, educational hub of happenings – Friday-Sun Jan 8-10, 2021. #NOFAWC
The event aims to highlight critical, solutions-oriented work happening state-wide to scaffold food security and to celebrate the resilience of the people of Massachusetts, embracing and ensuring communal pathways to sustained nourishment – particularly our farmers, gardeners, growers and champions of the grassroots organic soil health movement from across the Northeast. Workshop schedule and more information available on our registration site.
We are delighted to announce that Greg Watson, Director of Policy and Systems Design at Schumacher Center for a New Economics, and Eric Toensmeier, author of Perennial Vegetables and The Carbon Farming Solution, will be our keynote speakers.
