9 Coloring Pages created for NOFA-NH / Northeast Organic Farming Association 

Screen Shot 2023-03-15 NOFA-NH Coloring Pages


These coloring pages were designed for young people learning about organic gardening and farming,  They were also envisioned as lagniappe that could be offered to families who were customers of organic growers at Farmers Markets, Farm Stands, and CSAs.  In particular, the “Why Buy Organically Grown Local Products?” coloring page offers children (and adults) a cheerful visual complement to discussions about this essential kind of farming.  I believe that food systems based upon small scale, relocalized, diversified organic gardening, farming, and eating are the ones that offer truly sustainable, healthy pathways for meeting human needs.  They represent the agroecological  and historical alternatives to industrialized, agrochemical farming.  They can help restore cultural and political sovereignty, dignified creative work,  biodiversity, and the vitality of the Earth’s soils, waters, and atmosphere / climate – even as they provide nutrient dense, pesticide-free food.

Many thanks to the Northeast Organic Farming Association of NH / NOFA-NH for encouraging me to create these pages for their newsletters in the early 2010’s – and for continuing to make the pages available on their website.  Here is  a link to the 9 downloadable pdf’s on the NOFA-NH website. Almost all of these coloring activities are also available individually on various pages of this evolving beauty.org website.
