Organic Seed Alliance (OSA)

The Organic Seed Alliance (OSA) is bringing heritage seed stewards from throughout the Americas to participate in a two-day “Seed Ambassadors” consortium at the front end of the World Organic Congress in Rennes, France. The purpose of the pre-Congress gathering is to foster cultural diversity and intergenerational representation within the organic seed community and strengthen its collective voice on global seed stewardship issues and ethical crop development. An estimated 150 farmers in all will be hosted for a field trip to on-farm seed research sites and attend workshops on preserving the diversity of cultures, traditions, and foods; celebrating culinary diversity; appreciating the diversity of plant breeding models; and supporting the next generation of cultural seed breeders.
