Annual Winter Conference &
50th Anniversary Celebration
February 2021 • Registration coming soon
Every February for the last 38 years, the NOFA-VT Winter Conference has been a highlight of the winter for farmers, gardeners, homesteaders, change-makers, organizers, and enthusiastic eaters. Each winter, over a thousand of your fellow organic movement builders join together for learning, inspiration, networking, and visioning—not to mention delicious food, meaningful conversation and joyful celebration. This event is a traditional benchmark in the agricultural season and like most things now, our conference will look a little different this year.
This February, in lieu of our in-person conference, we are planning an incredible month-long series of virtual events with many different opportunities for online learning, gathering, and movement building. (More details coming soon!) This series will also be the kick-off of a year-long celebration for our 50th anniversary (NOFA-VT was founded in 1971)!
