    The 2022 Draft Animal Power Field Days (DAPFD) will be once again held at the beautiful Sanborn Mills Farm in Loudon, NH. We will be returning to a 3-day schedule, intensive workshops on Friday September 30th, with our block programs and activities on Saturday and Sunday October 1st and 2nd.  The DAPFD committee is working on presenters, schedules and logistics for this year's event, we will be updating the website soon with more information and registration. Please consider becoming a a member or a sponsor at any level of support. 

    We need your help!

    The DAPFD committee is looking for additional members to join our team.  In addition to seeking input and help planning we are also seeking coordinator volunteers to take on some responsibility leading up to and at the 2022 DAPFD. Coordinators need to be able to participate in Zoom meetings and show up in person at DAPFD. We are still seeking a Teamster Coordinator and Volunteer coordinator. Coordinators will be given admission to the event, meals, and merchandise. These positions are a great way to get to know more people in our organization and get a foot in the door of our culture if you aren’t already. 

    The Teamster Coordinator will be tasked with organizing our teamsters, being a liaison between the committee and the teamsters, organizing what teamsters and equipment are needed for each part of our schedule, keeping teamsters and committee updated with changes and keeping teamsters on schedule. 

    The Volunteer Coordinator will be tasked with collecting volunteer info, scheduling and assigning volunteers tasks, updating the committee and volunteers as needed, and trouble shoot as needed. Volunteers will be working at registration/info area, parking, camping, field and forest helpers, and signage. 

    Thank you for considering to join our team and to help make DAPFD 2022 the best that it can be! Interested in volunteering at our event or becoming a Coordinator? Contact David Gibaldi, DAPFD and Events Committee Chairperson, at [email protected].

  • 2022 Soil and Nutrition Conference

    December 3 2022 - December 5 2022  
    Sturbridge, MA, USA

    About the conference:

    Welcome to the 11th annual Soil and Nutrition Conference. We are glad to be back in person for the first time in three years! This year we will be presenting five concurrent tracks to choose from: Agronomy, Nutrition and Consciousness, Science and Tech, In the Movement, and For the Planet. There will be eight sessions in each track throughout the weekend of Saturday, December 3rd and Sunday, December 4th. As usual, it will be a difficult choice during every workshop window as to which of the presentations to attend!

    New this year, we will conclude the conference on Monday, December 5th with a deep dive strategy meeting and town hall on the Path to Nutrient Density. At the BFA we have been holding this particular torch for a decade now, and are excited about building the community around this question and process. A thoughtful outline will be presented ahead of time to all who register for this special day, in support of their collective wisdom and insight being engaged in this process.
