Northeast Organic Farming Association Massachusetts Chapter wrote -
With your funds we will continue to encourage methods of farming and gardening that shows respect for the soil, water, and air that supports us all. Because of your support we will continue to promote political and economic changes necessary to build a sustainable local agriculture that benefits rural, suburban and urban Massachusetts. With your financial contribution we will further advocate for sustainable growing practices, which not only conserve but actually renew and improve our environment. We are looking at improved access for all to organic food and organic land and farming; with a consciousness of reaching low-income and marginalized people. Further, we are examining how NOFA itself perpetuates systems of privilege, and how we can begin to change that.
