Perennial Farm Gathering 2023 Sponsorships

PERENNIAL FARM GATHERING

 

December 6th – 8th, 2023

Wednesday – Friday, Virtual Event

Savanna Institute’s signature event of the year, the Perennial Farm Gathering brings together a wide community of landowners, farmers, and perennial enthusiasts. Over three days, folks gather from across the country and beyond to share our work, research, and lessons learned in panels, workshops, deep dives, and nutshell overviews – all to advance perennial agriculture. While the Savanna Institute is rooted in the Midwest, our virtual format now makes this information accessible to a national and global audience that has grown every year.

Sponsor this year’s Gathering

About the Opportunity

At the Savanna Institute, we know sponsorships aren’t just a creative way of giving to a good cause – they need to make sense for your bottom line. With new tier options this year that leverage our virtual format and social media communities, we’re confident sponsorship will put your business front and center of a diverse audience of decision makers including farmers, landowners, scientists, academics, climate enthusiasts, and more. Our virtual attendees span the United States and beyond, which means your advertising will, too! We’re also excited to offer promotion across our social media channels; mailing lists; and our brand new podcast, Perennial AF.

In addition to the benefits listed, sponsorship of the Perennial Farm Gathering and the Savanna Institute signals to your audience and ours that you’re committed to transformational solutions to the most pressing crises of our time. From combating climate change to increasing and diversifying income for farmers and improving soil health and water quality, agroforestry offers a win-win-win solution.

About the Savanna Institute

At the Savanna Institute, we work to advance multifunctional agroforestry in the Midwest: farming systems of integrated trees, crops, and livestock that foster ecological resilience, water quality, soil health, and vibrant rural communities. The Savanna Institute serves as a catalyst in this agricultural transition by empowering industry stakeholders via research, education, and outreach.

A renewed interest in agroforestry comes from the opportunity it presents to turn farmers into climate heroes, sequestering carbon on working farmland while keeping it productive and profitable.

Thanks for being a climate hero!
