The 33rd Annual NOFA Vermont Winter Conference is a highlight of the winter for Vermont’s farmers, gardeners, homesteaders and enthusiastic eaters. Please join us – and 1,500 of your fellow local food enthusiasts – for three days of learning, inspiration, good food and great conversation.

Our conference theme, Growing the Good Food Movement, is intended to continue and build on the important conversations that are taking place – locally, nationally, and worldwide – about farm and food equity, building a fair and just food system where everyone has access to healthy food, and where the farmers and farm workers who grow that food receive respect and a living wage. Growing the Good Food Movement means supporting new farmers, providing technical assistance to encourage successful farms, and connecting food consumers with their food producers. These themes and more will be addressed throughout the conference – in our workshops, the photography exhibit The Golden Cage, our featured films, Saturday’s keynote address by Natasha Bowens entitled “The Color of Food: Photography & Storytelling from Farmers of Color,” and Sunday’s poetry and story slam.

In addition to digging into these important issues, we’re hosting an exciting slew of localvore and homesteading workshops, gardening workshops put on by the Vermont Community Garden Network, our Annual Seed Swap, and lots of great music, food, and chances for conversation.

We look forward to seeing you there!
