GROW-Urban Agriculture Conference

November 1, 2023 - November 3, 2023

Zoom links will be provided after registration.

Contact: Holly Madill, Marie Ruemenapp

  • Are you interested in developing multidisciplinary urban agriculture research or education (REE) projects?

  • Are you interested in connecting with others interested in developing integrated REE proposals?

  • Do you want broader impacts from your research, extension and/or education work around urban agriculture?

  • Do you want assistance with creating competitive urban ag and integrated REE funding proposals?


Conduct a virtual conference to engage potential research, extension, education, industry, and community collaborators in integrated urban agriculture proposal development. During this conference interdisciplinary teams will collaborate to create creative and effective proposals rather than spend resources competing against one another. This conference will occur in 3 phases, focusing on developing teams, time to work together on proposals, and then refine those proposals.

Who should attend?
