NOFA Summer Conference
“Healing the Climate, Healing Ourselves”
About the Event:
More than one thousand backyard gardeners, health-conscious consumers, organic farming families, and food activists are expected to converge on the University of Massachusetts, Amherst at the 41st annual Northeast Organic Farming Association (NOFA) Summer Conference, August 14-16. Participants can choose from over 140 workshops on topics such as organic farming, gardening, land and animal care, sustainability, nutrition, and food politics.
Many workshops and the two keynote addresses highlight this year’s conference theme, “Healing the Climate, Healing Ourselves: Regeneration through Microbiology.” These presentations show how microbiology, at work in the soil and human body, are essential partners in solving some our biggest problems today, including widespread chronic disease and global climate disruption.
