Ten Years of SARE
|Molly and Ted Bartlett offer unusual options, such as eggs, flowers or hand-knit sweaters, as part of their CSA farm.|
Since 1988, USDA's Sustainable Agriculture Research and Education (SARE) program has made great strides toward increasing scientific understanding and promoting practical uses to manage sustainable agriculture systems.
Ten Years of SARE showcases accomplishments of a unique USDA program that has made a difference in the lives of farmers and ranchers across the United States and Island Protectorates.
To select a group of innovative, interesting and impactful projects, SARE staff chose one project from each of its four regions for the following 10 categories: Crop Production, Animal Production, Natural Resource Protection, Marketing, Community Development, Education, Pest Management, Horticulture, Professional Development, and Integrated Farm/Ranch Systems.
Publisher's Note: This book -- now out of print -- was published in 1998 to celebrate the first 10 years of the SARE program. It is archived here but may contain dated information. Find more current research and extension information elsewhere on our website.
