Since 1988, the National Sustainable Agriculture Research & Education (SARE) grants and education program has advanced agricultural innovation that promotes profitability, stewardship of the land, air and water, and quality of life for farmers, ranchers and their communities.
The Southern Sustainable Agriculture Research and Education (SARE) program is a USDA competitive grants program supporting agriculture that is profitable, environmentally sound, and good for communities.

Southern SARE's leadership structure encourages each member to contribute fully, while at the same time allowing tasks to be distributed appropriately. Three distinct groups operate within the region—the administrative council, technical reviewers and the state sustainable agriculture coordinators. Each group serves a different purpose.
