Call for Poster Presentations

Direct Farm Manitoba and the Prairie Fruit Growers Association are joining forces this year to put on a combined one day conference for producers, growers, market coordinators and anyone interested in direct marketing local food and value added products in Manitoba.

There will be interesting speakers, a tradeshow along with ample time to network and have some fun. We know that this community of producers can learn a lot from each other and this year we want to create a variety of ways for you to share your unique expertise. Would you be interested in putting together a poster presentations for the conference ? These would be visual displays using pictures, captions, text and diagrams to share your story. Have you mastered the best design for a high tunnel to grow your vegetables? Perhaps you trialed a new feed with your livestock this year and can share your results? Experimenting with irrigation options…. Start a conversation via a poster!

Posters will be displayed for all conference registrants to see and mingle through. Hang out near your poster and start some great conversation with others who are interested in what you are doing. Poster presenters will be eligible for a discounted conference registration (one student rate) for their trouble!

Interested? Send your name, bio, and a brief description of your presentation to events@directfarmmanitoba.ca by December 15th, 2017.
