Join the Northeast New Agrarian Network—a new coalition of farm organizations with a focus on young and beginning farmers—at the First Northeast New Farmer Winter Gathering on December 12 in Greenfield, Massachusetts. The convergence will bring together farmers based across New England and New York State to consider issues facing agricultural community today: from diversity and justice, to organizing and leveraging the collective voice of young farmers towards legislative change.

New England Farmers Union is one of seven organizations hosting this event. The others are the National Young Farmer Coalition and its Hudson Valley, NY, chapter; the Beginning Farmer Network of Massachusetts; New Connecticut Farmer Alliance; Young Farmer Network (RI); and the Harvard Food Literacy Project.
