Organic Seed Alliancelast updated: August 2009

Organic Seed Alliance is founded on the belief that seed is both our common cultural heritage and a living natural resource fundamental to the future sustainability of food production.

MISSION:
Organic Seed Alliance supports the ethical development and stewardship of the genetic resources of agricultural seed. We accomplish our goals through collaborative education, advisory services, and research programs with organic farmers and other seed professionals.

VISION:
Seed is both our common cultural heritage and a living natural resource fundamental to the future sustainability of food production. Proper stewardship of our genetic resources necessitates not only its conservation, but careful management in a manner which allows seed to continually evolve with challenges of the environment, cultural practices of sustainable agriculture and the need to feed people. Through advocacy, collaborative education, advisory services, and research we work to restore and develop seed varieties for current needs while safeguarding invaluable genetic resources for future generations.

OSA offers direct technical support services
From basic on-farm production to highly professional breeding programs and viable cooperative businesses, OSA has provided hundreds of farmers and students with the skills to engage in seed work. We link farmers with researchers and seed professionals in a participatory model for restoring and breeding varieties appropriate for organic production systems and markets. We also work with seed companies, retailers, food businesses, and others in organic seed-related issues. For questions about our services contact micaela@seedalliance.org
