The Southern Sustainable Agriculture Research and Education program, funded by the U.S. Department of Agriculture, furthers sustainable agriculture efforts through grants and educational tools and resources. The mission of Southern SARE is to expand knowledge and adoption of sustainable agriculture practices that are economically viable, environmentally sound and good for all members of the community.
To reach that goal, Southern SARE uses a variety of tools, including social media networks. As an organization that, in many ways, supports and is supported by grassroots efforts, Southern SARE has a place on social media – where people interact with people to shape the opinions and actions of the larger community.
For more information on SARE's social media policy, see the SARE Outreach Social Media Comment Policy. Our social media guidelines are based on the guidelines adopted by the USDA on new media.
