19th Annual NOFA-NH Winter Conference:
Grow Well, Eat Well
Our 19th annual Winter Conference went virtual! On February 13-14, workshops, community discussions, and a keynote speech focused on Cultivating Stewardship: Health, Harmony and Resilience. Learn more about the 2021 Conference here.
Feeding the Family Organic Gardening Series
Organic Farmer and NOFA-NH’s 2020 Leading Gardener of the Year Ron Christie is leading organic gardening workshops online in the spring of 2021. Recordings available.
NOFA-NH Farm Share Program
The Farm Share Program connects low-income NH individuals, families, and seniors with certified organic NOFA-NH member farms to provide them with reduced cost community supported agriculture (CSA) shares consisting of a season's worth of local, fresh farm products. Since 2017, 13 certified organic partners have provided discounted CSA shares to 140+ low-income NH residents.
The CRAFT* of Farming
Our 2020 CRAFT Program provided virtual learning opportunities for farmers, aspiring farmers, farm workers, and food-aware members of the public. In live Zoom webinars, attendees learned from experienced growers, shared with peers, acquired technical education and built social support. The program expanded in 2020! We offered six tours from July to October, all of which are now available to watch online.
Spring Bulk Order
NOFA-NH's annual Spring Bulk Order is a collective buying program for organic farming and gardening supplies. Thank you to our 2021 customers and host pick-up sites: Belletetes, Country Three Corners, and Spaulding Industrial complex.
Film Screenings & Panel Discussions
NOFA-NH periodically hosts both in-person and virtual film screenings and panel discussions. In November 2020, we hosted a virtual discussion with leaders from around the state and region to explore specific ways that localized, organic, regenerative growing and eating can contribute to the repair of unjust social structures, personal health, and the environment that sustains us.
Education & Activism
NOFA-NH is dedicated to building a community of organic food activists and educated consumers to help support New Hampshire's local organic farming community. Organic farming is important to creating a sustainable future because the practices of organic agriculture help to reverse climate change, restore vitality to the soil, and build healthy communities for all living creatures.
We recognize that more resources and greater education is needed to help farmers, gardeners, and consumers learn to work together to build a support network. In an age of industrial agriculture, we're working to re-establish a shared sense of pride and participation in a community-based food system that links local farmers with local consumers, and rewards them both equally.
