First The Seed Foundation Report

Chuck Zimmerman

Do you know about the First The Seed Foundation? Here’s what it’s about.

First the Seed Foundation (FTSF) is a not-for-profit organization established in 2008 by the American Seed Trade Association, one of the oldest trade associations in America, to inform today’s consumers and tomorrow’s workforce about the importance of the seed industry.

At the American Seed Trade Association convention we got a report on the foundation from board member Karen Withers. She starts her report explaining what the First The Seed Foundation does. Creating a Seed Career Handbook which has been distributed to over 500,000 students across the country is among the projects conducted by the foundation. Karen says the foundation is looking for Seed Industry Ambassadors. You can find a brochure on the foundation here (pdf).
