Submit a proposal to present at the Emerging Farmers Conference


The Emerging Farmers Conference is now accepting Calls for Proposals! The EFC is focused on farmers and led by farmers. It is for farmers who traditionally face barriers (including immigrant farmers and farmers of color) to the education and resources needed to have a successful and sustainable farm.


Do you have a session you'd like to share at the conference? Would you like to work with the EFC planning team to put together a presentation?  Do you have experiences to share that will help other emerging farmers become successful?  We invite you to submit a proposal for a session!  As a conference, we prioritize sessions led by emerging farmers, immigrant, indigenous and farmers of color.  We look for sessions that are either led by farmers or co-presented with farmers.  The style of learning preferred is hands-on, demonstrations, visual and observation based.

Conference Dates: Friday November 1- Saturday Nov 2, 2024 - Minneapolis, MN

Typical session length: 1.5 hours

The deadline to submit proposals is March 7, 2024

If you or someone you know would like to propose a session and needs translation assistance, please contact Big River Farms at (651) 433-3676.  Proposals are also welcome in audio and video format.  Proposals will be reviewed by the EFC Planning Committee and the EFC Farmer Advisory Groups.
