This regional event will provide networking opportunities, speaker panels, and educational sessions on tools for success, production, and collaborative ideas. Friday’s conference features keynote speaker Kelsey Ducheneaux, Natural Resources Director for the Intertribal Agriculture Council. Ducheneaux works to effectively reach and support the enhancement of Indian agriculture and food systems. Additionally, she is a member of the Cheyenne River Sioux Tribe and a fourthgeneration beef rancher. Ducheneaux will present ‘Embracing our Tribal Sovereignty to Promote Local Food Systems.’ She will share her perspective on ways we can embrace our diversity across the state to support more regenerative production practices, producer friendly agricultural environments, and communitydriven food systems. Saturday’s keynote presenter is Carol Ford, a Minnesota vegetable producer specializing in Deep Winter Greenhouse (DWG) production. She is also an educator with the Regional Sustainable Development Partnerships of MN Extension and author of ‘Northland Winter Greenhouse.’ Ford’s keynote ‘Building Resilient Rural Communities in Northern Climates’ will include big ideas about the concept of resilient rural communities. She will integrate discussion on how DWG can provide options for young people interested in farming, a method of farming on less land, a welcome income stream in the off-season, and a source of fresh foods in food deserts. Ford will additionally provide a breakout session on DWG production. Breakout sessions offered during the conference will feature: producing for restaurants, a chefs’ panel, getting your product on shelves, farm homesteading, organic production, food is medicine, grass fed beef & bison markets, the Thermo Greenhouse Community Project, farm to school, resource providers and grants and more.
