The Northeast Organic Farming Association of Connecticut's mission is to ensure the growth and viability of organic agriculture, organic food, and organic land care in Connecticut. We envision a healthy, organic Connecticut founded on ecologically, socially and economically just principles. As a growing community of farmers, gardeners, land care professionals, and consumers that encourages a healthy relationship to the natural world. CT NOFA:
"Imagine music as a recipe,” says Casey. “Would you be able tell whether it had been made with processed, cheap ingredients or fresh food straight from your local farm? Processed tomatoes are one thing—but you wouldn’t know what you had been missing until you tried the same dish with heirlooms, each beautifully imperfect by nature and full of raw flavor. Since it is nearly entirely improvised, Jazz is created organically, in the moment and delivered to the audience in split second timing. This unique show will marry the two concepts and show that organic music and organic food are more similar than they are different.”
