On November 6th NOFA/Mass will be coming together for our largest fundraiser of the year, our 4th annual 5k run/walk - Organic to Nourish Our Soils and Ourselves. This event is a great way to join with NOFA/Mass board, staff and members to ensure the continuation of these innovative and important NOFA/Mass programs:

  • Restoring carbon to the soil from the atmosphere through organic land management practices
  • Training the next generation of organic farmers
  • Advocating  for public policy in the interest of farmers and consumers at the state and national levels
  • Strengthening connections with marginalized populations to improve their access to organic farming resources

There are TWO ways you can help:
