Our Outreach Program is the educational arm of the organization which interfaces with the public. Outreach staff and volunteers attend fairs, festivals, conferences, gatherings, farmers' markets, anywhere we might be able to talk with members and non-members about NOFA's ideals and programs.

A few of the many topics people we meet wish to discuss are NOFA's concerns about local organic food and raw milk, farmer and gardener issues, environmental sustainability, the impacts of food production on our children, our communities our local economy.

Stop by our table at an upcoming event listed below, have a chat and pick up some interesting reading material. We thrive on personal exchange, ideas and connections. We also give talks and presentations at libraries, schools, garden clubs, etc.

Ways you can help:

  • Inform us of events in your area where you think we should have a presence.
  • Suggest other organizations we should be working with.
  • Help us compile a list of farmer's markets, health food stores and CSA's in your area.


  • Distribute literature to libraries, health food stores, CSA's, farmer's markets, etc.
  • Help recruit farms, restaurants and grocers for our online organic food and farm directory:
  • Join the organization and encourage your family and friends to do the same.

Healthy Soil, Healthy Gardens: Small Scale Practices for Soil Improvement and Carbon Sequestration

Maintaining living plant cover is one of the essential practices of building soil health. This workshop provides practical guidance on using cover crops in a small-scale, non-mechanized, no-till context to improve soil health both for growing more nutritious food and for sequestering atmospheric carbon into the soil.
