Western Sustainable Agriculture Research and Education (Western SARE) is soliciting applications to lead a consultative process and create a Sustainable Agriculture Action Plan to document the research, regulatory, area infrastructure, and educational needs and priorities required to increase sustainable agriculture practices in a specific industry/commodity or a specific area of the West. Western SARE seeks to fund two proposals: one focused on a specific regionally important agricultural industry or commodity; and a second focused on a specific, limited geographic area in the Western Region that includes multiple crops or production systems. The geographic area must be identifiable and logical, for example, a specific watershed, county or multi-county region, a Soil and Water Conservation District, an island or island system, etc. Each successful proposal will be funded for a maximum of $15,000, which will be awarded as a contracted services agreement by Montana State University, the Western SARE Host Institution.
