“The Northeast Organic Farming Association of New Jersey will hold its 2012 Winter Conference on Jan. 28 and 29 at Princeton University’s Friend Center. Farmers, gardeners, cooks and people who care about healthy farming for a better world will be there.
Last year’s event attracted 400 people from New Jersey and surrounding states, and even more are expected for this year’s expanded agenda, two full days instead of last year’s day and a half.
The “Radical Homemaker” herself, Shannon Hayes of Sap Bush Hollow Farm in Warnerville, N.Y., will kick off the conference with her talk, “The End of Consumerism. Hayes’ research and writings about homemaking as an ecological movement have landed her and her family on the pages and airwaves of the New York Times, National Public Radio, The Atlantic, Yes! Magazine and many more.
Dairy farmer, raw milk “law breaker” and organic advocate Michael Schmidt, of Glencolton Farms in Ontario, will give the closing keynote, “Got Raw Milk?”…”
