MONTHLY ORGANIC OPEN HOUSE

NOFA-NJ’s Monthly Organic Open House

NOFA-NJ’s Monthly Organic Open Houses are free events open to the public and are held on the last Wednesday of each month from 8:30AM – 9:30AM. The Open Houses are designed to offer an open, informal space for the community to gather, share knowledge and resources, solicit advice and suggestions from fellow farmers, and discuss relevant news and community updates.

The open houses also serve to support NOFA NJ JourneyPerson Program throughout the season as an opportunity for JourneyPersons and their Farmer-Mentors to check in and share their experiences with the NOFA NJ community.

2022 Monthly Organic Open Houses are virtual unless otherwise noted (via Zoom). All events are free but require registration to receive the meeting link. You can register via the link in our event Calendar, via the link in our Weekly Email, or by clicking on the links below.
