Tilth Conference

Request for Session Proposals

Farmers, researchers, educators, advocates, and all members of Washington’s agricultural community are invited to submit session proposals for this year’s Tilth Conference!

Presentations should provide useful, relevant, applicable information that supports the success of organic, regenerative, and sustainable producers, at all levels. Tilth Alliance and the Tilth Conference work to create and support a sustainable, healthy and equitable food system.

About Sessions

This year’s conference will be held in-person with limited options for online participation (more details coming soon). Farmers and all others working within our agricultural community are asked to contribute and share their practical experiences, key learnings, and expertise in 75-minute sessions including time for Q&A. Presenters will be required to present in-person — online presentations are not available at this time. Farmer/Rancher and BIPOC presenters are offered free registration for the Friday and Saturday of the conference. Other presenters are offered a discounted ticket price of $237.50.

The request for proposals will close on Friday, July 15; 11:59 p.m. PDT.

Criteria

Proposals will be evaluated on the following criteria:

  • Relevant: Does it fit in with the theme and intent of the conference? Will it provide useful information to farmers (particularly small to mid-scale farmers), farm workers or other key players in our food system?
  • Compelling: Is it interesting? Is it important? Is it well-communicated?
  • Practical: Is there a takeaway? Will it potentially lead to changes in behavior or the adoption of new practices?
  • Well Planned: Is it fully thought through? Is it suited for an in-person format?

Please complete the proposal form below if you are interested in presenting at this year’s Tilth Conference. If you’ve got several great ideas and would like to suggest all of them, please submit a separate form for each of them.

If you’d like to make suggestions for a topic or presentation that doesn’t match this form, contact Teri Rakusin.

We are no longer accepting proposals for sessions at this year's Tilth Conference! Please consider submitting a proposal next year.
