Students, farmers, and researchers are invited to present at the 12th Annual Small Farm Poster Session at the Indiana Small Farm Conference at the Hendricks County Fairgrounds in Danville, Indiana. The poster session will be held on Thursday, February 29, 2024, from 4:30 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. (EST). Each year a diverse group of presenters share their experiences relevant to local foods, diversified agriculture, or small farm production and education. In exchange for sharing their experiences, poster presenters receive a discount on their conference registration. The Indiana Small Farm Conference has provided an educational and networking opportunity for the small and diversified farmers of Indiana for the past eleven years. In that time, the number of poster presenters steadily increased.

The Poster Session Chairpersons, Emily Evers and Jeff Pell explain, “Each year, more and more farmers
are presenting posters for the first time. It’s important to provide an opportunity for these farmers to share their experiences with each other. The small and diversified farmers in Indiana want more peer-to-peer learning opportunities and the poster session is just one way that the Indiana Small Farm Conference encourages networking.”
