Keynote Speaker
This year our Keynote Speaker is Frances Moore Lappe, author of 18 books including “Diet for a Small Planet” and co-founder of three organizations including Food First: The Institute for Food and Development Policy and, more recently, the Small Planet Institute, a collaborative network for research and popular education.

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. Workshop Schedule (confirmed to date)

Green Market Fair
Don’t forget your reusable shopping bags, when you visit the Green Market Fair. There will be an array of non-profit organizations, eco-friendly vendors, organic and herbal products and more. Our raffle table will also be full of many wonderful goodies.

Potluck Luncheon
Once again you can participate in our delicious potluck luncheon. Bring a dish for eight to share, or you can purchase a plate. Try to include as many organic and local foods as you can and be sure to list the ingredients in your dish and if it is meat, vegetarian, vegan, sugar-free or gluten-free.

The conference will offer continuing education units to Master Gardeners and NOFA Accredited Organic Land Care Professionals. Registration materials can be found at
