NOFA-NY Winter Conference

In January 2013, NOFA-NY will hold its 31st annual conference with the theme Resilience.

Organic farmers are no strangers to adversity. 2012 was a year of extraordinary economic and environmental upheaval. Record heat in March was followed by two hard frosts in April, decimat- ing many early-rising crops. Then, we descended into a protracted drought. Yet, our farmers once again plowed on (pun intended). For the unsung role organic farmers play for our health, our communi- ties, our culture, and our very survival, together we want to recog- nize and celebrate their remarkable resilience.

Each year we strive for our conference to inspire as well as in- form, and as always, the conference will be an unparalleled oppor- tunity for networking and for reciprocal teaching and learning.

We look forward to being with you in January!

Where: Saratoga Hilton and City Center, Saratoga Springs, NY
When: January 25-27, 2013
