The Northeast Organic Farming Association (NOFA) Summer Conference features 144 individual sessions with 27 different topic areas. Workshops address organic farming, gardening, land care, draft animals, homesteading, sustainability, nutrition, food politics, activism, and more. The theme for this year's Conference is "Healing the Climate, Healing Ourselves: Regeneration through Microbiology". Keynote speakers include Dr. Natasha Campbell-McBride, talking about the healing potential of food for overcoming chronic illness and Ronnie Cummins, discussing "Reversing Global Warming & Rural Poverty through Regenerative Organics".

Each year, we offer educational and fun workshops designed for kids and teens where children bond with others throughout the Northeast while parents attend workshops and the plenaries. This is an event for the whole family: Music, dance, films, games, animal rides, and meet-ups. Modest registration, inexpensive dorm rooms, camping and delicious, wholesome organic meals.
