We’re super sad about missing your grass-stained t-shirts and gritty handshakes for another year but this isn’t stopping us from presenting the best conference education program we can provide and streaming it right into your hands and to your homes!

Please join us and over 45 expert presenters for a virtual NOFA Summer Conference to be held July 30th – August 6th, 2021 via Zoom.

Together we will celebrate 50 years of Organic Farming and Food advocacy in the Northeast and we will also look towards the next 50 years of our role in changing the landscape of organic agriculture.

A Future of Food Security for All – with Special Guest Ira Wallace


How can we develop systems to build community resilience, grow local agriculture, improve access to nutrient-dense food, share growing spaces, and mitigate climate disruptions?

All seven state chapters of the Northeast Organic Farming Association (NOFA) have been working to develop food security programs and learning opportunities to address these questions.

2023 NOFA/Mass Winter Conference Keynote Speaker, Ira Wallace, of Southern Exposure Seed Exchange, will discuss the importance of food security and how seed saving continues to play an important role in feeding our communities.

This is a free event.
