Go deeper into your winter study sessions at the upcoming NOFA/Mass Winter Conference at Worcester State University on January 13th, 2018! Our full program of adult, teen and children’s courses will be just what you need to prepare for your next growing cycle. You can also discover more than 80 excellent vendors at our Trade Show!
The day-long conference features a wide variety of workshops on many aspects of regenerative organic growing, food systems policy, and land management appropriate for growers and organizers of all scales.
This year’s theme is Cover, Diversity, Regenerate. Degraded soils can be restored by promoting the biological function of the soil ecosystem, which can be accomplished through living plant cover, mulches, and smart farm systems which reduce soil disturbance and enhance ecological diversity.
This year’s conference will explore what the food producing and food activist community can take from agroecology, permaculture, current research and pioneering growers like our keynoter, Gabe Brown, who have been developing techniques to enhance the biological life of the soil by reducing soil disturbance and increasing cover on the lands they manage.
Early-Bird registration opens October 15th. Please save the date, invite your friends to this event page, and stay tuned for updates! More info at http://www.nofamass.org/wc
