Re: Northeast Organic Farming Association – MA Summer ...

I attended the winter conference of NOFA and can tell you it was very exciting for anyone looking to change directions from the large corporate model to a smaller community based one.  It was my first conference, but the attendence figures had almost doubled year over year so mindsets are changing (a very good thing).  Think exponential here and imagine a doubling of attendence every year for 5 years.  I think this is a perfect venue for Chris and believe it should be very well received by this audience.  I will try to attend again, as there is great knowledge to be gained, and many new connections that can be made for those really interested in making this movement to a new sustainable, and healthier way of life.  I hope many others from the CM community will make the effort to attend.  I do not think you will be dissapointed.
