Have a very organic New Year

Organic Land Care is a holistic approach to landscaping that improves the natural resources of a site by fostering cycling of resources, promoting ecological balance, and conserving biodiversity.

The 25th anniversary Winter Conference of the Northeast Organic Farming Association of New Jersey (NOFA-NJ) will be held Saturday and Sunday, Jan. 24 and 25, at the Warner Student Life Center of Brookdale Community College, 765 Newman Springs Road in Lincroft.

Saturday’s Keynote Presenter will be Mark Smallwood, executive director of the Rodale Institute, who will be speaking on the recently released white paper “Regenerative Organic Agriculture and Climate Change.”

“We are at the most critical moment in the history of our species, as man-made changes to the climate threaten humanity’s security on earth,” stated Smallwood. “But, there is a technology for massive planetary geo-engineering that is tried and tested and available for widespread dissemination right now. It costs little and is adaptable to local contexts the world over. It can be rolled out tomorrow providing multiple benefits beyond climate stabilization. The solution is farming.”
