SARE Seeks Ideas to Improve Sustainable Agriculture Outreach

May 15, 2024

Do you have an idea for an educational product or outreach initiative that could help farmers or ranchers improve their profitability, environmental stewardship and quality of life? Maybe a suggestion for filling an information gap that is hindering the adoption of sustainable agriculture practices? If so, we want to hear from you!

SARE Outreach is seeking recommendations for information products or outreach initiatives that extend research-based sustainable innovations to improve the sustainability of American agriculture. Please submit your ideas using the link below by June 15.

Previous SARE Outreach projects have included:

  • Books, bulletins and factsheets exploring the principles of sustainable agriculture
  • Videos demonstrating sustainable practices at work 
  • Outreach initiatives that extend SARE funded research results to a national audience

Submissions should address the following criteria:

  • Advances sustainable innovations that improve profitability, stewardship and quality of life in agriculture
  • Extends SARE-funded research that addresses a critical information gap
  • Serves the needs of farmers, ranchers and/or agricultural educators at the national or transregional level

Non-English Language Publishing Projects: We welcome submissions for projects that seek to develop educational materials in a language other than English. The target audience must be U.S. farmers. Due to our limited linguistic and cultural capacities, we recommend that any submission includes a bilingual partner (individual or organization) who is prepared to collaborate on developing the proposed materials. Submissions must be in English to be considered.

This survey is intended to assess information needs and opportunities only. Submission does not constitute a request for or guarantee of funding. Competitive grant opportunities are offered regularly by the four SARE regional programs. Information regarding regional SARE grants can be found at Please contact SARE Outreach at [email protected] if you have questions or comments.
