Who: interested consumers, farmers, gardeners, etc.
What: The annual winter conference and workshops of NOFA-NY (Northeast Organic Farming Association of New York).
Where: Rochester, New York
When: January 23rd through 25th
Why: There are workshops on everything relating to non-conventional food! Topics range from building better soil in a garden to homeopathy for cows to gathering mushrooms. It is amazing and inspiring the number of people from across the state who come! Last year, it was in Saratoga Springs, so if you live in Western New York, this is an amazing opportunity to attend a NOFA-NY function without having to drive across the state. Costs depend whether you're a NOFA member, your age, and how many days of the conference you'll be attending. Registration before December 5th is discounted.
