About the NOFA/Mass Winter Conference

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.

Our keynote address will be delivered by renowned farmer and rancher Gabe Brown, who 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.
