Saving Our Seed is a USDA Sustainable Agricultural Research and Education (SARE) funded project, organized by the Carolina Farm Stewardship Association and nine partnering organizations, working to increase the availability of regionally adapted, open pollinated, certified organic seed and develop a southern seed network.

By increasing the availability of seed adapted to the southeast’s unique growing conditions, on-farm seed production can greatly support the growth of organic agriculture in the region.
