Our Beds & Breakfast seminar is a community garden and urban farming winter seminar reaching around 50 participants per year. Participants will indulge in an organic, nutritious breakfast before jumping into the the day. A keynote speaker/panel will begin the event, followed by three 50-minute sessions composed of three options per session. Participants are welcome to select any workshop to attend during the three sessions. This year we are looking for presenters with expertise in a wide variety of topics. Past topics have included cooking and nutrition, community greening, food access, home/urban gardening, and creative use of natural materials.

If you are chosen to be a presenter, your obligation will be to prepare a workshop that will fill a 50-minute session, including time for a Q&A period. The workshop can include a digital presentation and/or hands-on component and we will provide resources when possible and with due notice.
