The Alliance

American Indian Mothers Organic Network logoThe Southeastern African-American Farmers Organic Network (SAAFON) and the American Indian Mothers Organic Network (AIMON) have formed an alliance to educate farmers of color about sustainable agriculture, environmental issues, health and nutrition, and how the cultural history of both groups is related to agriculture.

SAAFON will be providing organic certification training, technical assistance, and mentoring assistance to AIMON as the organization develops its growing group. AIMON will provide cultural and historic agricultural resources not only to re-educate the Native American communities in the Southeast about their agricultural heritage, but to educate other farming communities of color about the contributions the American Indian has made to agriculture.

The main goal of this partnership is to reduce the historic negative economic and social impact farmers of color have suffered by "being left out of the loop". The alliance will collaborate on trainings, educational resources, the development of local food systems, and marketing strategies for organic products from the combined growing groups.
