CT NOFA Winter Conference 2014

CT NOFA, The Connecticut Chapter of Northeast Organic Farming Association, is “a growing community of farmers, gardeners, land care professionals, and consumers that encourages a healthy relationship to the natural world.”  They’ve been changing Connecticut one shovel, plant, farm, consumer, and restaurant at a time since 1982 and they are going stronger than ever.

From time to time, CT NOFA has events and meetings and this weekend is their 32nd Annual Winter Conference.  On March 1, from 8:30-5 pm, at the Midtown Campus (meet at Berkshire Hall) of Western CT State University, you’ll have a chance to attend workshops, listen to the keynote speech, bid on raffles, buy CT products, and have lunch from local restaurants and purveyors that put good, healthy, local and sustainable food first.  Tickets are $35 for students and farm interns/apprentices or $60 for all others and will help to fund CT NOFA’s mission of making Connecticut better.
