NOFA Vermont sponsors annual events to provide education, build community and strengthen local organics.
NOFA-VT’s mission is to build an economically viable, ecologically sound and socially just Vermont agricultural system that benefits all living things. In order to build the future we yearn for, all voices must be present and represented for our movement to be whole.
NOFA-VT offers free and reduced-cost registration for all our educational offerings including our annual Winter Conference, on-farm workshops, and other Farmer Services programs to anyone who identifies as Black, Indigenous, or a person of color (BIPOC). NOFA-VT provides this offering in an effort to actively work toward dismantling systems of racism that have historically disadvantaged BIPOC and continue to do so today.
NOFA-VT’s On-Farm Workshop Series will be online this summer, and offers something for everyone, from the beginning backyard gardener to the veteran organic farmer, tools and information for successful organic growing.
