Your Voice Matters: Organic Research Survey Extended 

During these uncertain times, it is more important than ever that farmers and ranchers make their voices heard. OSA and the Organic Farming Research Foundation (OFRF) have released two national surveys: one for certified organic producers and a second for producers transitioning to organic. This collaborative effort is part of a project to learn about the challenges and research priorities of organic operations. Survey results will be published in updated versions of OFRF’s National Organic Research Agenda (NORA) report and OSA’s State of Organic Seed (SOS) report. If you’re an organic producer, we need to hear from you!

Finding Solidarity in Our Alliance

OSA is not a membership organization. We are an Alliance. We are built of partnerships and create spaces for these partnerships to emerge and thrive outside our influence. Any individual or organization whose work, values, vision, or sense of shared responsibility aligns with ours (however imperfectly) is part of this Alliance, whether we’ve been working together for years or have yet to meet. Our commonality is the seed that we steward for generations to come. The mission of OSA – teaching farmers to save, grow, and improve seed, and advocating for policies that support their success – is imperative now more than ever. And working in solidarity with you, our Alliance, is the only way to get it done.
