2021 Winter Conference

Online January 16 – 23, 2021

Organic farming is rooted in health – of the soil, the farmer, and the community. And health is the foundation of resilience. Our conference theme, Rooted in Resilience, reflects the ability of organic systems to embrace challenges: no matter whether it’s a global pandemic, unprecedented weather, a new pest, or the loss of an important market.

For nearly four decades, our conference has convened farmers, homesteaders, soil scientists, seedkeepers, and ag-vocates to work together and learn from one another. The mutual support and the generous exchange of knowledge is a hallmark of the NOFA-NY community. And now, we’ve seen the power of the that: our CSAs, farmers markets, and local co-ops have been models of food security throughout the COVID-19 pandemic. Our conference is an opportunity to leverage that power and learn directly from the experts: you!

One registration = 90+ workshops and events!

Workshop sessions and events will run for eight days so you can get even more content than you would at the in-person conference. We will be hosting our conference on Socio in order to keep all of our events in one place and to make it as easy as possible to navigate. Through the app you can join sessions on your computer or phone, create your schedule, get reminders, message other participants, and more! The app will remain open to all conference participants, sponsors, and exhibitors until February 23, 2021. Meaning you’ll have more than a month to enjoy all that the conference has to offer! And, if you miss a session, no worries! You can view recordings on the app. 

Sponsor the Conference

While we’ll miss our in-person gathering, we are excited that this virtual format expands our conference to a wider audience! We look forward to helping you connect with even more participants across the Northeast.

As a conference sponsor, you can reach both conference goers and NOFA-NY’s broader audience through our website, mobile conference app, digital conference program, email blasts, eNews, virtual trade show, and more!
