Announcement from NOFA-NY:
The United Nations has declared 2012 as the International Year of Cooperatives. Building on this momentum, NOFA-NY has chosen The Cooperative Economy for the theme of our 2012 Winter Conference, set for January 20 through 22 in Saratoga Springs. The conference is nothing if not a team effort; from the technical workshops to the meals, it is the product of all of us working together. Our presenters donate their time and knowledge to help others learn new techniques and perfect old ones. This years keynote speakers include: John Ikerd, a Professor Emeritus of Agricultural Economics at the University of Missouri, Kathlyn Terry, executive director of Appalachian Sustainable Development (ASD), and the 2012 NOFA-NY Farmers of the Year Paul and Maureen Knapp.
