The Alabama Sustainable Agriculture Network (ASAN) is a network of farmers, consumers, and agriculture-related organizations, all committed to promoting sustainable agriculture in Alabama. We are working to improve the situation of farmers in the state and to provide the state’s consumers with fresh local products.
ASAN members believe that by providing educational opportunities for Alabama’s farmers and ranchers and by educating both consumers and agricultural professionals about sustainable agriculture, we can improve the lives of small farmers and rural and urban communities and make a positive contribution to the state’s environment and health. We define “Sustainable Agriculture” as farming that supports families and communities while conserving natural resources.
ASAN’s mission is to support conservation practices, families who grow and consume natural food and fiber, and the communities where they live.
