sustainable agriculture research and education (SARE)

The Sustainable Agriculture Research and Education (SARE) (https://www.sare.org/) program is a decentralized competitive grants and education program operating in every state and island protectorate. Funded by the United States Department of Agriculture's National Institute for Food and Agriculture, the program is run by four regions (North CentralNortheastSouth and West) hosted by land-grant institutions. SARE Outreach provides communication and technical support at the national level. 

West Virginia belongs to the Northeast region (https://www.northeastsare.org/) along with Connecticut, Delaware, Massachusetts, Maryland, Maine, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Vermont, and Washington, D.C.
 

Northeast SARE offers a number of grant programs to farmers, educators, researchers, nonprofits, and others who work with farmers.  You can also search SARE's national database for grant project results.  
 

SARE also provides a wide range of educational resources, including books and bulletins published by the national SARE Outreach office to publications developed by grant recipients.

While the program operates regionally, state programs deliver train-the-trainer programs locally and provide outreach in each Northeast state.  West Virginia has two state coordinators, Barbara Liedl at West Virginia State University and Doolarie Singh-Knights at WVU.
