Aug 1st, 2013 | Category: News

MOUNT VERNON – The second annual Student Organic Seed Symposium will be held Aug. 4-7 at the WSU Mount Vernon Northwestern Washington Research and Extension Center. Titled “Breeding and Advocating for Resilient Organic Seed Systems,” this year’s symposium is a student-led initiative that enables graduate students from across the country interested in organic seed systems to share resources and learn from leaders in the field.  Approximately 30 graduate students are participating in this symposium, which will include presentations from 18 leaders in organic plant breeding and seed production, tours of local farms and seed companies, and opportunities for graduate students to demonstrate their research interests through student trial plots at the WSU Mount Vernon research center, 16650 State Route 536, Mount Vernon. This symposium was organized by students from WSU the University of Madison-Wisconsin, and Pennsylvania State University.  It is sponsored by Seed Matters, with support from the following entities: WSU Mount Vernon NWREC, WSU Department of Crop and Soil Sciences, Vitalis Organic Seeds, and Organic Seed Alliance.
