NOFA Vermont Summer Workshop Series


Do you want to increase the resiliency of your farm or homestead? Grow more veggies in your home garden? Learn from experienced farmers and share experiences with new ones? Celebrate good farming and good food in your community?
Then join in the 2013 NOFA Vermont Summer Workshop Series, with dozens of workshops for beginning and advanced farmers, home gardeners, and intrepid homesteaders.

NOFA will also be touring the state with its mobile pizza oven at "Celebrate Your Farmer" socials, where you can get to know a farmer in your community and learn more about how they farm and why--all while enjoying fresh, wood-fired pizza with your neighbors.

The series kicks off on July 11 with a Celebrate Your Farmer pizza social at Your Farm in Fairlee, followed by four more events in July, 10 in August, and more to come.
