INTRODUCTION TO THE SECOND EDITION


Information about the institutions and organizations listed in this directory was compiled from a number of sources. Criteria for selection were an institution's involvement in organic, low input or sustainable agriculture and focus on education, training or provision of information. Although we have attempted to ensure that it is current and correct, we make no guarantees. Scope of coverage is limited to the U.S. and Canada. Inclusion of an organization in this directory does not imply a recommendation by the AFSIC. The updated edition contains corrections and additions received from the organizations listed and from other contacts. We wish to express our thanks to all those who contributed suggestions.

Support for this and other Alternative Farming Systems Information Center (AFSIQ projects has been received from the Low Input/Sustainable Agriculture (LISA) program. Jane Potter Gates, Assistant Coordinator of the AFSIC, and Katy Bielenberg had principal responsibility for compilation of this directory.
