Northeast Organic Farming Association Summer Conference, Amherst, Mass.

We love this time of the year in New England, particularly because fresh, local produce is abundant and always adds to the perfect summer meal. If you’ve wanted to learn how to start your own garden, but you’re unsure how to get started, then you won’t want to miss the 32nd Northeast Organic Farming Association's (NOFA) Summer Conference. It’s being held in Amherst, Massachusetts from August 10-13. Learn how to grow good food, have fun, eat well, and meet fellow enthusiasts of locally grown real food and organic living. The NOFA Summer Conference is New England’s largest and most comprehensive gathering of growers and enthusiasts of organic food and healthy lifestyles. This year’s conference is supposed to be the most exciting yet, with more than 200 workshops, programs for kids and teens, an organic country fair, organic meals, dance, music and fellowship. Registration is available for all three days or for individual days. Accommodations and meals are also offered for those traveling from afar. Visit NOFA’s website for more registration information.
