The 2018 NOFA/Mass Winter Conference – to be held January 13, 2018 at Worcester State University – will explore the regenerative aspects of organic land management and food production. 

Gabe Brown, renowned farmer and rancher, will deliver our keynote address. Brown has shifted toward continual plant cover, zero-tillage, intercropping, multi-species grazing, and high-diversity cover crop cocktails. These changes have increased both soil health and farm profitability. 

In addition, we will have 60+ workshop options on improving food system, farm, garden, and homestead productivity – including biological insect control, soil carbon sequestration, multi-species cover cropping strategies, permaculture design process, fermentation, food justice, and holistic wellness. 

We are accepting workshop proposals until September 15, so if you have knowledge to share, please submit your workshop soon. Proposals are accepted on a rolling basis, so submit early. We look forward to hearing from you!
