The Tennessee SARE program is facilitated through a joint collaboration between the University of Tennessee Institute of Agriculture and Tennessee State University Cooperative Extension. We work together to deliver a program that enhances the environmental, social, and economic sustainability of the state through research and education. Tennessee SARE partners with researchers, extension faculty, producers, and community organizations to research and implement the best science-based practices available in all aspects of Tennessee's agricultural system. In addition to research, SARE is dedicated to providing education in sustainable agriculture through various trainings offered each year.
