New seed internship program

OrgSeedAllianceOrganic Seed Alliance (OSA) and the Multinational Exchange for Sustainable Agriculture (MESA) have launched the Seed Internship Program, the first of its kind in the U.S. The program matches individuals who want to learn about seed production with experienced seed farmers. The six-month internships combine hands-on education, farm-based independent study, and classroom and online learning, and emphasizes training in organic seed production given ongoing gaps in the supply. As part of the program, OSA will provide a webinar series for participating interns and curriculum for participating farms to provide structure to each internship. This project was funded in 2015 by the Beginning Farmer and Rancher Development Program grant from USDA’s National Institute of Food and Agriculture program.
