Walk-in Registration Form

Join our keynoter, Regenerative Pioneer, Gabe Brown, and over 60 farming and gardening experts at this year’s 31st Annual NOFA/Mass Winter Conference.

This year's theme is Cover, Diversity, Regenerate. We will explore how soils can be improved and degraded soils can be restored by promoting the biological function of the soil ecosystem with living plant cover, mulches, and smart farm systems.

This year's conference will explore what the food producing and food activist community can take from agroecology, permaculture, current research and pioneering growers like our keynoter, Gabe Brown.  You can view the adult workshop program here and the youth workshop program here. New this year, we have two additional day long intensive options to choose from. Click here for details on Intensives.

conference scheduleIn addition to dedicating a portion of our program the science and practice of building soil life, we have workshops on topics like raising healthy livestock, high-production gardening, managing an integrated farm and homestead, growing and marketing nutrient-dense crops, encouraging beneficial insect populations, improving access to healthy foods and soils, and supporting organic food systems in a changing climate.
