Join us at the NOFA Vermont Winter Conference!

This weekend at the University of Vermont in Burlington, Chelsea Green staff and a selection of our northeast-based authors will be attending the Northeast Organic Farming Association’s annual winter conference.

If you’re an aspiring farmer, or a seasoned pro looking to learn some new skills or network with others in your field (pun intended, sorry), the NOFA-VT conference is a great place to spend a day or the full weekend.

Below is a list of authors, the workshops they’ll be leading, and the time of their book signings. Their books will also be on sale, and Chelsea Green staff will be tabling and hosting their signings, so stop by and say hello!
