NOFA-NH 10th Annual Winter Conference
Growing Food, Farms and Community
Sanborn Regional High School, Kingston, NH
Saturday, March 3, 2012
The Winter Conference is the premiere gathering of New Hampshire’s organic food and agriculture community; where farmers, gardeners, herbalists, organic landcare specialists, permaculturalists, localvores, educators, activists and consumers of food, join together.
Presenters from New Hampshire and New England will offer their experience and expertise in topics ranging from beginning and advanced organic farming and gardening, organic land care, sustainability, raising livestock, alternative energy, and producing and selling locally. Cambridge activist Frances Moore Lappe will be the keynote speaker. She is the author of 18 books and the co-founder of three non-profits, including Food First: The Institute for Food & Development Policy.
Please join us for over 40 workshops — including some led by teens — and programs for Youth and Children. This year, herbalists from the NOFA-NH Herbal Network will be leading several of the sessions, and the Beginner Organic Farmer Program is back as well. Program Schedule now available online >
The conference will also offer continuing education units to Master Gardeners and NOFA Accredited Organic Land Care Professionals. Registration materials can be found at www.nofanh.org.
