Farm to School BC has announced that their 2023 conference will be taking place May 17th-19th, and a call for proposals is open until February 15, 2023.

The 2023 conference, Planting the Seed: Harvesting connections, ideas, and community, will be happening at the UBC Nest in Vancouver. While the event takes place in BC, anyone interested in school food, education, health, agriculture, Indigenous affairs, culinary arts, and/or policy is encouraged to attend.

Conference themes include school farms, meal programs, Indigenous food ways, capacity building, celebrating culture with food, community connections, youth leadership and training, and more.

More information on the call for proposals can be found here on the Farm to School BC website. Proposals may focus on any promising practice, innovative initiative, experience-based observation, policy, and/or research effort to advance the movement toward healthy, local, and sustainable foods for students.

Proposals are being accepted in the formats of workshops, teacher & student-led posters, short talks or stories, and original research papers. Successful applicants will have access to a reduced presenter registration rate for the conference (50% reduced ticket price).
