On-Farm Workshops & Celebrate Your Farmer Socials 2019

Join us!

Learn something new this growing season!

Are you interested in learning about practices to improve soil health and efficiency on your farm? Making your homestead or backyard into an edible landscape? Creating your own medicinal salves from Vermont-grown plants? At a Pizza Social, you can visit a beautiful farm, meet your neighbors, and enjoy wood-fired pizza with place-based toppings sourced from that farm. Our On-farm Workshops & Celebrate Your Farmer Socials are happening all around the state this season, so please join us!

PLEASE NOTE: Join us in welcoming NOFA-VT’s new Executive Director Grace Oedel! Grace will be traveling around the state to several of our socials this summer, marked by an '*'. Join us for delicious pizza, a farm tour, and to learn more about Grace and what she brings to the organization.
