    My partner and I have presented at different ag and sustainability events in the past, and we are curious to know a bit more about the possibility of doing a workshop or a presentation at your conference. Can you please send me more information, in particular can you let me know when the deadline for submitting a workshop proposal is, even if it’s already passed?
    Peace and Love,
    Dan

    • Dan,
      You need to contact Stone Barns to find out about presenting at their conference. I just posted the announcement for them, I don’t organize the conference.
