Ujamaa Cooperative Farming Alliance Seeks Survey Participants

ujamaa

Make your voice heard and help support the Ujamaa Cooperative Farming Alliance to put culture back into agriculture.

The Ujamaa Cooperative Farming Alliance (Ujamaa) is a BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, and People of Color)-led collective seeking to increase grower and crop varietal diversity in the United States. In partnership with the University of Vermont, we are conducting a research study to examine how food and agriculture can better enhance access to culturally meaningful seeds and food. This information will support farmers and other participants in the seed value chain to expand regionally adapted, sustainably grown and less commercially available varieties of seed (and the crops that come from these seeds).

To do this, we need your help! As an essential participant in the seed value chain, you are being invited to participate in a survey entitled Market opportunities for culturally meaningful seed and food. Completing the survey will take about 20 minutes.

Participating in the survey is completely voluntary, and your responses will be kept confidential. If you do participate, you can opt into a raffle for one of 50 $100 gift certificates.

If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact the Principal Investigator (PI) of this research study, Daniel Tobin, at uvmseeds@uvm.edu, or you can reach out to Ujamaa directly at ujamaacfa.researchsurvey@gmail.com.
