The Northeast Organic Farming Association has lots of appealing happenings coming up.
NOFA 2009 Organic Field Days

2009 NOFA Summer Conference
The NOFA Summer Conference is the Northeast’s largest and most comprehensive gathering of growers and enthusiasts of organic food. With a 35 year history of teaching people about organic farming, gardening and living, this year’s conference promises to be the most educational yet, with workshops on a wide range of topics, concurrent programs for kids and teens, an old fashioned country fair (open to the public), organic meals, camping, dancing, live music, and fun! Close to 100 exhibitors will participate in the trade show where you can learn even more and make connections for important products, services and with movement non-profit organizations.
Keynote addresses by Paul Stamets, mushroom expert and author of Mycelium Running: How Mushrooms Can Help Save The World and urban farmer Will Allen, CEO and founder of Growing Power.
