Coyotes, insects, herbs, chickens and vegan food: what do these all have in common? These are just a few of the topics that were presented at this year's Northeastern Organic Farmers Association's (NOFA) Winter Conference. The SCA CLC teamed up with the SCA corps members to assist with preparations for the event and also to make sure the workshops ran smoothly and stayed on schedule by volunteering as room monitors. Even though the day was long, it went off without a hitch. Surprisingly, the weather even cooperated. Throughout the day the CLC attended all four workshop series while taking breaks to explore the tide of vendors spread throughout the gym,. Midday the conference attendees gathered in the cafeteria for the Community Potluck Lunch. There was an amazing selection of goodies to choose from and good conversation to be had. After lunch, the CLC could not resist the smell of fresh air, so they headed outside to indulge in some rare sunshine. The day finished with some very sleepy-eyed but far more knowledgeable CLC members climbing back into the van to head home in Manchester.
