Last year, OSA’s programs resulted in more research projects, educational events, and advocacy initiatives than ever before:
- We trained hundreds of seed growers and other seed advocates and professionals in the field, classroom, and via live webinar.
- We expanded our research and education staff in the Intermountain West and Midwest.
- We launched a new website and publication library to make it easier for our community to find the seed resources they need.
- Our research collaborations are expanding the genetic diversity of our seed supply while giving farmers the varieties they need to farm organically and feed their communities.
- Our advocacy team advanced constructive policy proposals that will expand organic seed systems at the regional and national level.
All of these efforts support a sustainable food future built on a foundation of organic seed. Read many more highlights from 2017 below, and then join our efforts by signing up for organic seed updates or donating today.
