The UC Sustainable Agriculture Research and Education Program (SAREP) is a statewide program within UC Agriculture and Natural Resources.

  • We build networks between researchers and practitioners to improve how we conduct academic research, and strengthen local efforts by providing relevant data and data analysis.
  • We create tools for farmers and local food system practitioners to assess and strengthen their own agricultural and marketing practices.
  • We assess existing programs to help them meet changing needs and serve as examples for burgeoning efforts throughout the state.
  • We conduct original research on issues that cut across disciplines and work with stakeholders to ensure research is useful credible.
