The Student Organic Seed Symposium aims to strengthen and grow the future of organic and sustainable agriculture. We do this by supporting a new generation of plant breeders and seed professionals that will lead the way developing crops for organic, sustainable, and agroecological cultivation systems and in promoting strong, local, and regional seed systems. This is an annual event organized by and for graduate students across the country who are interested in organic plant breeding and sustainable agricultural systems.
This year's symposium was held on August 5th -8th, 2016 in Waterville, Maine at Colby College.
