NOFA Vermont’s Winter Conference is Growing the Good Food Movement on February 14-16, 2015

BURLINGTON, VERMONT – The NOFA Vermont Winter Conference is an annual gathering for Vermont’s farmers, gardeners, homesteaders and foodies featuring three days of learning, inspiration, good food and great conversation on February 14, 15, and 16, at the University of Vermont in Burlington.

The theme for the conference is “Growing the Good Food Movement” which builds on the important conversations that are taking place locally, nationally, and worldwide about farm and food equity. Many people are working toward 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.

The theme will be addressed throughout the conference in our workshops, the photography exhibit “The Golden Cage”, our featured films, Saturday’s keynote address by author/storyteller Natasha Bowens entitled “The Color of Food: Photography & Storytelling from Farmers of Color,” and in Sunday’s Poetry and Story Slam.

Participants at the conference can also dig into a slew of localvore and homesteading workshops, gardening workshops co-organized by the Vermont Community Garden Network, our Annual Seed Swap, and lots of great music, food, and chances for conversation. More details and registration are online at

There is also a Children’s Conference for the next generation of farmers, gardeners, and foodies which features hands-on workshops, art projects, yoga, outdoor play and much more. The cost for children ages 5-12 is just $30 per day. More information about the Children’s Conference is at
