Resources for Coping With COVID-19

NOFA-NH has been gathering resources to help our community cope with the Coronavirus pandemic. Despite the trying nature of these times, we see this moment as an opportunity to come together to recognize the importance of our food and farming community (from a safe distance).

 

In addition to the below collection, we encourage readers to visit our comprehensive Resources webpage for farmers, gardeners, educators and eaters, and E-newsletter Archive.
