NOFA Summer Conference

August 12, 2016 - August 14, 2016

SC-Logo-2016-with-year-300dpi

Join people from across the Northeast and beyond for a three-day celebration of the grassroots organic movement. Here learning is a community action – with amazing farmers, presenters, seminars, workshops, food and fun. Immerse yourself with like-minded practitioners and curious learners eager to share their inspiration and ideas for organic food, farming, health, activism, and beyond.

Young people can build their organic vision for the future at the children and teens conferences.

This year’s keynote speakers bring a passion for solutions – Leah Penniman, food justice activist and farmer at Soul Fire Farm, and AndrĂ© Leu, international organic agronomist and President of the International Federation of Organic Agriculture Movements.

We want as many as possible to be able to attend, regardless of income! Work exchange and scholarship opportunities are available, as are discounts for groups of five or more and multiple children from the same family.
