Develop Emerging Grassroots Leadership

We help Southern producers and other grassroots supporters of sustainable agriculture become leaders by inviting individuals emerging in our network to be presenters at the Southern SAWG conference, participants in policy organizing and educational activities, representatives on USDA program committees, members of Southern SAWG program committees, members of the Southern SAWG Board of Directors, and/or contact people in their locales and states to aid the exchange of critical information between Southern SAWG and our grassroots constituents.

It is because Southern SAWG considers it necessary to have the talents and expertise of producers and grassroots individuals actively engaged in creating a better food and fiber systems for this country that we provide these new avenues for these individuals to develop skills, share ideas and make a difference.
