2014 North American Biodynamic Conference Presentation Proposal

The Biodynamic Association welcomes proposals for workshops and presentations for our 2014 North American Biodynamic Conference, which will take place November 13-16 in Louisville, KY. You may propose yourself as a presenter or nominate someone else to present.

Proposals on any topic will be considered, but priority themes for the 2014 conference include:

  • Connections between agriculture and food quality, nutrition and human health
  • Qualitative methods of understanding nature and evaluating the quality of soil and food
  • Beginning and advanced workshops on biodynamics and the biodynamic preparations
  • Integrating animals on the farm, animal husbandry, and grazing
  • Food culture, food preparation, ways of enhancing the health and flavor of food
  • Practical, ecological farming and gardening techniques from any source (biodynamics, organic, permaculture, etc.)

Collaborative presentations, interactive activities and alternative teaching styles are encouraged.

Deadline extended: Presentation proposals will now be accepted until April 7, 2014. If you wish to propose multiple presentations, please submit one form for each proposal. Please note that we expect to receive many more proposals than we can acommodate, and no proposal is guaranteed to be accepted. We will inform you of a decision by the end of May 2014.
