United StatesThe Northeast Organic Farming Association (NOFA) Summer Conference takes place August 14-15, 2015 at UMass Amherst in Massachusetts. Stay tuned for updates on this site. The call for workshops is posted here. Information on signing up for exhibit space will be posted in February 2015. The workshop program will be posted by May 1, 2015.
This year, among the pre-conference offerings will be an all-day seminar on Friday, August 14, given by 2015 keynoter Natasha Campbell-McBride, on the healing potential of food for overcoming chronic illness.
The 2014 NOFA Summer Conference program included 150+ adult workshops on organic farming, gardening, land care, draft animals, homesteading, sustainability, nutrition, food politics, activism, and more.
Each year, we offer educational and fun workshops designed for kids and teens where children bond with others throughout the Northeast while parents attend workshops and the plenary.
This is an event for the whole family: Music, dance, films, games, animal rides, and meet-ups. Modest registration, inexpensive dorm rooms, camping and delicious, wholesome organic meals.
