NOFA Conferences

Want to present at the 2023 NOFA/Mass Winter Conference?

Saturday, January 14 through Sunday, January 15 – Worcester State University, Worcester, MA

This is a valuable opportunity for farmers, gardeners, homesteaders, educators, and environmentalists to share resources and ideas to grow our vibrant organic community. We are excited to come together around this winter’s theme, “Cooperative Foodways: Building Our Future Together.”

The conference hosts 40+ workshops and draws hundreds of attendees from throughout the Northeast. In 2023, we plan to run an in-person program on Saturday and online program on Sunday. We encourage you to make the most of the range of possibilities – i.e. tastings in person, international discussions over Zoom, tool modifications, storytelling. Creativity is welcome!

Note not all proposals will be accepted into the conference schedule. We will do our best to select and offer workshops on a range of popular topics from a range of diverse speakers.

Reach out to Conference Workshop Coordinator David Durstewitz ([email protected]) with any questions. We will review proposals throughout August and September and contact you to accept, reject or gather more information into the first week of October.
