2023 Conference

About the Conference

CT NOFA is proud to present our 41st Winter Conference, to be held the second week of March, kicking off on Monday, March 6th, 2023 with a week of live virtual workshops and concluding on March 11th with an in-person gathering and celebration at Wesleyan University.

We'll be offering a variety of live virtual workshops on farming, seed saving, organic land care, community food security, social justice issues, and more, including a keynote address by farmer and author Leah Penniman.

Join us in March as we learn, grow, innovate, and think critically about what we want our food system to look like in the future. Registration is open on a sliding scale ⏤ this model allows us to practice economic solidarity, providing mutual support for the cost of our programs. In this way, we make our education more accessible and help cover costs of operation. Choose the pricing tier that fits with your income and access to wealth, and help us create a more just, inclusive, and equitable conference.

Many thanks to Soul Fire Farm, and Rock Steady Farm for their vision and leadership in advocating for equitable pricing models. Scholarships are still available thanks to our generous donors and sponsors. If you would like to request a registration fee waiver, please click here.

Conference registration includes invitations to all live virtual workshop sessions and our in-person celebratory gathering on March 11th, as well as exclusive access to all workshop recordings for 3 months after the event.
