We are gathering in 2021 for our Annual Healthy Farms Conference virtually.
We recognize that there is a strong relationship between healthy local agriculture and a strong local food system. That relationship requires that much of the food consumed is grown and processed locally. This adds quality and security as well as social and ecological responsibility to the community diet. It is this understanding that motivates NSAS’s work to strengthen and enhance these systems together. Our work is across Nebraska in all communities and settings to expand this system for the benefit of local agriculture and local residents.
NSAS is active in collaborative projects that support rural communities and the environment. These projects offer mentoring opportunities for beginning and experienced farmers, and opportunities for on-farm research, demonstration, and education. We offer opportunities for non-farmers to participate in a food system and network with sustainable Nebraska farmers, attend workshops and link with all our projects! Each year, NSAS sponsors this Healthy Farms Conference, workshops, farm tours, and field days. NSAS is a member of the Midwest Sustainable Agriculture Working Group.
