Growing Power Urban and Small Farm Conference 2014

The 2014 Growing Power Growing Power National International Urban and Small Farm Conference is proud to announce its request for proposals for workshop presentations. We look forward to hosting another stellar conference with workshops that will focus on the 2014 conference theme "Building a Fair Food Economy to Grow Healthy People." This conference will showcase the best practices and principles in sustainable agriculture that have been developed to date and the innovations underway that will grow a healthier tomorrow. We want conference attendees to learn how they can grow food year-round, no matter what the climate, and how they can build markets for small farms. We hope that the conference will galvanize our collective efforts to create a new food system that fosters better health and more closely-knit communities.

The Growing Food and Justice for All Initiative (GFJI) will be holding its seventh annual Gathering concurrently with the conference and have planned many of the cultural activities.

We are actively seeking innovative and multidisciplinary workshop proposals from growers who are currently operating urban and small farms, as well as those who are working in areas that support this emerging area of agriculture and local economic development. Conference workshops are intended to enhance the skills and broaden the perspective of participants.
