Call for Proposals at Good Food Fest, March 24, 2018


Want to present your preserving process? Wax eloquent about the wonders of worm composting? Crow about your kombucha? Brag on your beautiful homebrew?

The Good Food Fest is asking for presentation topic proposals for 2018. Deadline is Feb. 2, 2018.

Event Date: Saturday, March 24, 2018
Event Hours: 10:00am – 5:00pm
Event Location: UIC Forum, 725 W. Roosevelt Road, Chicago, IL
Workshops Hours: 10:30am – 4:00pm
Length of Workshops: 30 minutes
Workshops Location: Level 1 of UIC Forum in combined Rooms D-E-F

Workshop presenters should focus on skills-based topics that can be delivered in a concise 30-minute format to a small group. Audience engagement is critical and a format that fosters direct interaction and time for questions is essential. Each Resource Center will seat 6-12 attendees with standing room for a small group. Your proposal should include a description of your presentation format to help us understand how it will integrate into this environment.

RESOURCE CENTERS include:

COMPOST IT: includes soil topics, vermiculture, compost teas, troubleshooting, best practices, or anything else related to composting practices.

GROW YOUR OWN: includes urban growing, container gardening, season extension, harvesting & handling, and other DIY gardening skills.

MAKE YOUR OWN: includes kitchen skills, keeping cultures (kombucha and sourdough), culinary curiosities, special diets, preserving, fermenting and other creative cooking topics.

RAISE YOUR OWN: includes livestock, raising urban animals, bees, chickens, goats, or anything else of interest to backyard livestock enthusiasts.

Thank you for your interest, and we look forward to seeing the creative ideas our great Good Food community comes up with! Please e-mail questions to Nick Lucas at outreach@auachicago.org.
