Cultivating the Organic Grassroots Movement: the 2017 NOFA Summer Conference
Hampshire College, Amherst, MA

The Northeast Organic Farming Association’s Summer Conference is the community learning hub of the NOFA universe. We learn, we play, and we enjoy a weekend of skill building, inspiration and entertainment. It is our opportunity to get together and inspire one another during a family friendly weekend with people living the same lifestyle, holding the same vision and working respectively in many ways toward the same goals.

Friday’s Keynote Michael Phillips is an Organic Orchardist known across the country for helping people grow healthy fruit. The “community orchard movement” that he helped found provides a full immersion into the holistic approach to orcharding. His Lost Nation Orchard is part of a medicinal herb farm in northern New Hampshire.

Saturday’s Keynote Speaker is Dr. Don Huber, Professor Emeritus of Plant Pathology at Purdue University, who for 55 years has focused on the epidemiology and control of soil borne plant pathogens with emphasis on microbial ecology, cultural and biological controls, nutrient-disease interactions, pesticide-disease interactions, physiology of host-parasite relationships and techniques for rapid microbial identification. He has focused his work on the effects of Glyphosate (the main ingredient in Monsanto’s Round Up) on biological systems in soil and humans alike.
