**Online pre-registration for the conference is now closed. We welcome you to register “at the door” with us on either morning of the conference between 7:30 and 8:30 AM.**

Please join us for the 12th Annual NOFA-NH Winter Conference! We are excited to welcome folks to a weekend of more than 40 workshops, a Green Market Fair with more than 30 local business, farmer and artisan vendors, a Saturday evening keynote presentation by Coming Home to Eat author Gary Paul Nabhan, and a NOFA-NH conference mixer, also on Saturday night.

This year’s theme, “We Are All Farmers: Seeding a Common Soil,” reflects the swiftly-moving current of today’s food movement and the demand for safe, healthy, local food for all. As time moves on, it is becoming clearer that this movement relies on many different groups working cohesively and simultaneously together, including farmers, homesteaders/gardeners, consumers, educators, advocacy and policy makers, health practitioners, and others. We hope our 2014 conference can be a gathering place for the members involved in this movement and the work we must continue to do as pieces of one whole local and global community.
