Southeast Region Seed System

Regional engagement since 2011. In 2012, OSA conducted a Southeast seed needs assessment that represented more than 2,000 agricultural community members. Following the publication of these results, OSA convened a Southern Seed Working Group made up of farmers, university research, extension, seed companies, and other stakeholders to move recommendations forward. The working group has identified organic research and education initiatives for building a robust seed system that responds to the needs of organic agriculture in the Southeast. To learn more about our work in this region, and to become a major investor in this project, please contact Micaela Colley.
