During these virtual times, we’re trying a new way to connect - a NOFA-VT member book club!
On Thursday, January 21st from 6:30-8pm, please join us to discuss Sherri Mitchell’s important book, Sacred Instructions: Indigenous Wisdom for Living Spirit-Based Change. This is a great way to get ready for Sherri’s keynote at our annual Winter Conference and also connect with fellow NOFA-VT members during these socially distant times.
If you don’t have a copy of the book yet, you can contact your local library or consider purchasing from one of Vermont’s incredible independent bookstores. You can find a list here »
