CT NOFA Holds March Conference for Farmers, Gardeners and Homesteaders

The Northeast Organic Farming Association of Connecticut (CT NOFA) is proud to present its 42nd Winter Conference, featuring a series of virtual workshops on March 20-21 in the lead up to a full day, in-person gathering and celebration on March 23 starting at 9 a.m. at Eastern Connecticut State University in Willimantic, Connecticut, in partnership with their Institute of Sustainability. Attendees at the conference include gardeners, farmers, homesteaders, and organic and sustainability enthusiasts.

The workshops cover topics such as farming, seed saving, organic land care, community food security, social justice issues, and more, including a keynote address by Maya van Rossum, founder of the Green Amendments for the Generations organization. The in-person celebration will also feature the presentation of the Bill Duesing Organic Living on the Earth award and the organization’s members' annual meeting.

Join this March as we learn, grow, innovate and think critically about what we want our food system to look like in the future. This year, CT NOFA will continue to implement a sliding-scale pricing model, allowing the organization to practice economic solidarity while providing mutual support for the cost of the programs. In this way, they make our education more accessible and help cover costs of operation. Choose the pricing tier that fits with your income and access to wealth, and helps CT NOFA create a more just, inclusive and equitable conference.
