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.
