For over 35 years, people like you have given generously to NOFA-NJ. This generosity continues to inspire and sustain our grassroots movement of supporting local farmers and growers and educating New Jerseyans about the benefits of growing and eating organic. During this intense and turbulent time, it’s important to look for silver linings.  Here’s one bright spot that we’ve seen on the ground: people are increasingly interested in accessing food closer to home and we’ve seen New Jersey’s organic farmers step up in creative & heroic ways. We seek to capitalize on this momentum and emerge from the Pandemic with our local, organic food system on even stronger footing.  

Organic farmers grow healthy food and healthy communities. Through NOFA-NJ, you help local farmers develop the skills to farm organically and develop resilient business models.  By supporting our efforts to expand organic farming in New Jersey, you help to make fresh, local food available to more people in New Jersey. You’re also making a commitment to responsible stewardship of our land and to increasing capacity in our local economies. Organic agriculture has made important in-roads into changing our food system for the better and helping small farmers stay competitive. We need your support now more than ever as we continue to push for ecological farming and food production in the Garden State.

We realize there are many worthy causes needing support. Every dollar and ounce of commitment from every person, farm, and business helps in the pursuit and sharing of NOFA-NJ’s organic mission, and we don’t take that for granted. Whether you’re a farmer, a gardener, or an eater, we invite you to be a part of our mission to support the growth and resilience of organic agriculture in New Jersey Please join us by attending our educational events, joining as a member, and considering an end of the year donation.  Together we can continue growing organic in the Garden State.
