Diversity, Equity & Inclusion

NOFA-NH is committed to creating an inclusive culture where all forms of diversity are seen and valued within our organization and the greater organic agriculture community. As farmers, gardeners and eaters, NOFA-NH recognizes that modern American agriculture was founded on structural racism and inequality, and that there is much work to be done to address generations of injustice experienced by Black, Indigenous, and People of Color, LGBTQ+ individuals, disabled individuals, incarcerated individuals, economically disadvantaged individuals, women, veterans, and any other marginalized groups.
 
With a mission of helping people build sustainable, healthy food systems for healthy communities, NOFA-NH is committed to advocating for farmers and farmworkers, food justice, environmental justice, and racial justice as part of building a truly sustainable agricultural sector in New Hampshire and beyond.
