NOFA/Mass Winter Conference (w/ permaculture expert Mark Shepard)

Don't miss an exciting opportunity to hear and learn from Restoration Agriculture author, Mark Shepard at the NOFA/Mass Winter Conference on Saturday, January 11 at Worcester State University.

In addition to 60+ workshops on various topics, Mark Shepard, a permaculture designer, agroforester and ecological farming consultant will lead a day long seminar and offer the keynote speech.

Shepard and his family have transformed a typical 140-acre row-crop dairy farm into a permaculture-based, perennial-agricultural ecosystem using oak savannah, successional brushland and Eastern woodlands as ecological models. The farm features chestnut, hazelnut, and fruit trees, a variety of other fruits and vegetables, and chickens, ducks, pigs and other animals. The result is one of the first farm-scale models of permaculture in the United States.
