Road to Certification rescheduled for Dec. 6
Join NOFA-NJ for an exploration of organic certification in the one-day intensive course "Road to Certification." We'll take an in-depth look at National Organic Program regulations, what they say and what they mean, and explore elements of the process, including the transitioning period and the maintenance of certification. Hear from professionals in the industry, including certified organic farmers, and move your farm towards organic certification! More Info.
