It’s #GivingTuesday- Show Farmers Some Love!

Today is Giving Tuesday, a day dedicated to giving back. Today people around the world will come together for one purpose: to celebrate generosity.  We hope you will show your support for organic farmers today, and encourage others in your community and network to do the same.

Organic begins with seed, and our commitment to organic seed starts with the farmers. OSGATA is committed to growing successful organic farmers, and protecting the high-quality organic seed they rely on.
We need your help to meet our end-of-year finances and keep our organization going, and have chosen today to launch an end-of-year fundraising campaign to close the gap on our 2015 finances. Comprised of organic farmers and supportive community members, we’re a hardworking group, and we’re working to maintain the integrity of organic foods for people like you.
Your donation will continue to fuel OSGATA’s work:
  • Promoting the right to farm, and protection from GE contamination.
  • Defending farmers’ right to save and trade seed.
  • Ensuring the right to true choice in the marketplace for farmers and consumers.
  • Promoting protocols for maintaining organic seed integrity and testing seed quality.
  • Encouraging the viability of regional organic seed companies.
  • Developing and supporting organic seed standards.
  • Helping send farmers to National Organic Standards Board meetings, legislative actions, conferences, and more.
  • Advocating for establishment of “no detect GE content” in organic seed and for biotech responsibility and accountability.
Please take part in this global celebration of a new tradition of generosity and give today.  As a farmer-driven organization, OSGATA relies on generous support of our members and donors to help us fulfill our mission to protect, promote, and develop the organic seed trade and its growers.
