Northeast Organic Farming Association of Vermont - NOFA

https://nofavt.org/events/winter-confer ... 17-19-2018

Feb 17, 18, 19
Burlington VT
this has an impressive list of workshops - the full day Monday workshop on silvopasture (treed pastures) is turning my crank; I might go just for that.

From Ottawa Burlington is as far as Guelph (my ipad map says 5 hours 2 mins to Burlington and 5 hours 3 mins to Guelph!)

here's an example:

I would actually be interested in going to the ECSONG agm, but don't think I'd have anyone to look after the toddler that day :( Maybe next year.
