Join Organic Seed Alliance for the Southeast Organic Seed Summit at the Carolina Farm Stewardship Association’s Sustainable Agriculture Conference. The summit is a gathering for current and potential seed growers, organic seed companies, and allies with the goal of developing long-term strategies and collective actions to build seed systems in the Southeast.
The summit agenda features workshops on seed production, plant breeding, variety trials, and seed enterprise development. There will also be farmer-to-farmer information sharing, networking, and listening sessions.
