Winter Conference


41st Annual Winter Conference: Back to the Roots

Each year, the NOFA-VT Winter Conference provides a valuable opportunity for farmers, homesteaders, gardeners, land managers, educators, students, policy-makers, and other food-system activists to participate in our vibrant community event by sharing ideas, resources, and skills.

This winter, join us for a conference designed to return to, nourish, and regrow our roots: our relationships! It's been a long while since we've gathered, and we're excited to do what matters most: connect with each other. Join us for a conference designed to connect, inspire, network, and deepen the roots that sustain the movement for a thriving agriCULTURE. Stay tuned as we add more details here!

  • When are we gathering: Saturday, February 18, 2023 for the main, one-day conference (with some longer "intensive" workshops scheduled on Sunday, February 19)
  • Where are we gathering: University of Vermont, Burlington, VT or online
  • How are we gathering: In-person with a live-streamed online option

We have now closed our request for workshop proposals. Workshop details will be posted as we progress in conference planning! It will be a diverse offering.
