NFU University

About NFUniversity

With classes on the second and fourth Thursday of each month from October through April, NFUniversity features experts, researchers, farmers, and others on topics ranging from climate change, agroecology, seed policy, carbon markets, and beyond. The sessions build upon the foundational knowledge many NFU members and others already have, delving deeper to advance our understanding to a higher level, and increase our capacities to analyze and advocate. Recordings of previous NFUniversity classes are posted on our Past Classes page.

Classes take place on Zoom, from 12:00 PM – 1:30 PM Pacific time. Each class includes a question-and-answer period after the speaker’s presentation. French interpretation will be provided if requested when registering at least one week in advance.
