CSFC will be held March 5 - 8, 2016 in Sacramento
Experienced small-scale farmers and other agricultural innovators needed!
Everyone involved in California small-scale agriculture or direct marketing is invited to submit a proposal for a workshop at the 29th California Small Farm Conference (CSFC) in Sacramento on March 5 - 8, 2016. The CSFC mission is to provide relevant educational and networking opportunities and resources to address issues facing farmers, ranchers and farmers' market managers. The conference aims to provide workshops that are relevant for both beginning and experienced farmers and farmers' market managers.
For 2016, successful workshop proposals should be concise (250 words or less in response to each question) and focused on a timely topic. Successful proposals will be of great educational value to conference attendees. Typically, the Conference attendance is comprised of small-scale farmers, ranchers, farmers' market managers, government officials, students and non-profit representatives.
If your workshop is selected for the Conference, one-day registration and one meal will be provided the day of the speaking engagement to each speaker on the panel and to the workshop coordinator (if not a speaker). There is no compensation for travel expenses incurred.
Since its inception in 1982, more than 7,500 farmers have benefited from the California Small Farm Conference. The Conference is the state's premier gathering for small-scale farmers, farmers' market managers, agriculture students and small farm industry professionals, and attracts approximately 500 attendees each year.
Thank you in advance for your contribution!
