The Washington Organic Seed Summit will be held online this year and includes virtual roundtable conversations focused on different themes each day as informed by participants. We’ll gather December 6 through 8, 2021 on the Organic Seed Commons virtual platform. Agenda and meeting times TBD.
The Summit provides a unique opportunity for experienced Washington-based seed growers of specialty seed crops (vegetables, herbs, and flowers) to network, exchange knowledge, and develop collective actions to build sustainable, profitable, and resilient seed systems in the state.
At the Summit, experienced Washington-based seed growers will:
- Hear research updates, learn about organic seed production for high-value markets
- Get an inside look into seed quality, accessing specialty seed, and interact with a community of passionate seed growers, processors, and distributors.
- Connect with industry professionals to get the latest information on Washington organic seed production, as well as getting access to regionally adapted seeds.
- Get the inside scoop on rising investment and policy opportunities.
Details for joining Organic Seed Commons along with Zoom links will be emailed to registrants prior to the event. To learn more, contact Aba Kiser.
