What's New at NOFA-NY

Here at NOFA-NY, we are always looking for new ways to serve our members, as well as to bring farmer and consumer together. That’s why we have an exciting new membership benefit: an online events calendar

 We often get requests from our members to publicize events for their farms and organizations. Well, now we can! By simply e-mailing event details to This email address is being protected from spambots.

Supporting our member’s needs is something NOFA-NY prides itself on, from our educational workshops to our Neighborhood Farm Share program.  We are honored to support our members’ commitment to local, organic and sustainable food and farming.  “Our network of members spans the entire state, and we're excited to provide another way to bring people together around organic food and farming. We hope this tool will help more people find meaningful ways to connect with each other, and in turn strengthen our regional organic and sustainable farming communities,” said Cecilia Bowerman, NOFA-NY’s Membership Coordinator.

Some upcoming events include “Conscious Beekeeping: Practical Organic Approaches for Healthy Bees and Grow Apiaries” at the Pfeiffer Center, which is an all-day workshop on helping bees thrive, and a May Day Celebration, including a nature walk and potluck supper, at Peacework Farm. Keep checking back for an event near you!
