Presentations will need to be no longer than twenty minutes in length and allow time for questions. Presentation materials (projector, screen, computer, etc.) will be provided.


Concurrent Sessions- Saturday, March 9th, 2019

All sessions should relate to our theme of “From Garden to Table,” educating others on growing your own groceries, creating community green spaces, the science of soils, new classroom ideas on getting students outside or creating fun and easy meals with available ingredients. The possibilities are endless! Short sessions are one hour in length and long sessions are two hours. Please allow time for questions and answers as well as sharing any materials in your sessions.
