Going Organic: NOFA NJ’s Summer Food Symposium

NOFA NJFresh Jersey organic produce is coming into season; it’s so good and good for you! Okay – You’ve made the decision to eat healthier but don’t know where to start. Can what you eat really change how you feel? Do you need to know how to prepare or preserve fresh-picked food to maintain its taste and nutrient density?

NOFA-NJ can help answer these questions and more! Join us at our Summer Food Symposium to delve into the world of organic cooking, eating, and living. Four expert speakers will lead you on this day-long exploration of healthy food and fun as they show you how to make fresh locally grown food a part of your daily life.

You will learn about the history and significance of the “Organic Food” movement and why it is important to our environment and to you – the consumer. Watch as fresh fruit and vegetables become nutritious, delicious and satisfying drinks, dishes, and snacks – some to eat right away and some to save for later. Learn the basics of preserving seasonal fruits and vegetables to enjoy year around.

The program will be held on Friday, June 21 from 8:30 am – 4:30 pm at Duke Farms in Hillsborough, NJ. Seats are limited and preregistration is required. Lunch is included in the ticket price. For more information and to register go online to: www.nofanj.org or call 908-371-1111.
