Time to thank those spectacular folks who volunteered for us in February. THANK YOU Anna Gilbert-Muhammad, Julie Rawson and Jack Kittredge and Jason Valcourt for attending many of the other NOFA chapters’ winter conferences. And a thank you and welcome to Nancy Potts who wanted to volunteer and so became a member.

So, now is your chance to participate more fully in your favorite organic farming organization! Check out these upcoming events and let me know which strike your fancy. You’ll get free admission and have fun meeting new people and talking NOFA! Or stop by the table to say hi to the volunteer who did step up. More events will be added to our website. If you’re interested, contact me at
