Thank you for supporting NOFA-VT!
Dear Friend of NOFA-VT,

Now, more than ever, when I meet our members and friends, you express how highly you value NOFA’s role in building communities and being part of a movement that is positive, forward thinking and inclusive. Please help us continue to nurture this movement by contributing to our annual fund.

When we gathered people together at our on-farm socials this summer and fall, we talked about the value of a strong organic farm and food movement in Vermont: one that enhances soil health, supports the next generation of organic farmers and makes positive connections between Vermont farmers and appreciative eaters. We also asked the farmer hosting each social to tell a story about their farm and why organic matters to them. The photos on this card are from Sunrise Farm, a certified organic farm in White River Junction. Farmer Chuck Wooster shared that “Organic is about the health and safety of the food, but as a farmer it’s also about the health of the soil and the land. We can walk out in the greenhouse and taste tomatoes and know they’re safe for our workers, our customers and my family to eat.” Organic. Matters.

This is a critical time for our work to strengthen organic farms, increase access to healthy food for all Vermonters and build strong communities. Your support is critical to making our work possible. Below are some highlights of our work in 2017, and we have ambitious goals for 2018! Please help us by making a year-end contribution. Every donation matters. 

Thank you, in advance, for your support!
