Events have slowed down but I do want to thank some of our volunteers. Brittany Overshiner represented us on a panel at the Green Careers Conference, Nicole Belanger tabled at Food Day in Worcester, and Christine Rainville joined me at the WSU Sustainability Day. Thank you so much for the help and for spreading our NOFA/Mass ideas to the public.

We encourage you to be involved and to support this vibrant, grass-roots organization, helping us to fulfill our mission:

In the past month, we attended some fabulous events and advocated for your favorite organic farming organization! The Big E was as hectic with throngs of people in attendance. We tried to talk with as many as possible and to interact with “government” folks too. Thanks for the help, Mary DeBlois! Mary also helped at the North Quabbin Garlic & Arts Festival, as did Leanne Limoges and Bob Banning. Again, thank you trusty volunteers, one and all!

2015 Team NOFA/Mass

Our biggest fundraiser of the year is only a few short months away and we need your help! Will you consider raising funds to help sustain our programs? The success of this event is key to the strength and impact of our programming.

Want to join a fun and crucialfundraiser that will support NOFA/Mass? For the past three years we have partnered with Battlegreen Run Foundation to host a 5K run/walk in Lexington. In total, we have raised well over $50,000. The success of this event is key to the continuation of our programming. Join us on Sunday, November 6.

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.

Do you want to attend interesting events and help others learn about NOFA? Enjoy some fall activities without having to pay to attend!

Help is needed staffing the NOFA/Mass outreach table at events across the state.

We’ve heard from you that you want to connect with other NOFA/Mass members in your area in a casual way. To that end, we are organizing two gatherings to help you meet others who share your love of gardening, homesteading, farming, the earth, interest in affecting policy change…  and need to connect with other like-minded folks. One gathering will be in the Worcester area and we need your help deciding on the other region.

Member volunteers will be assisted in developing hometown or regional volunteer groups and creating mini-NOFA communities thus allowing for greater networking, companionship, and support.
