Organic Trust Australia – Research and Education (OTARE) was set up as a registered charity to manage funds received from private and public sources for research and education in organic agriculture in Australia.

Agriculture in general has been a major contributor to the environmental problems of our time. Agriculture need not cause such problems.
Organic Agriculture enhances soil structures, conserves water, mitigates climate change, and enhances sustained biodiversity.
World-wide, farmers are discovering that organic farming can be part of the solution.
But, for a change to happen, we need much more research and education in organic agriculture management, and its benefits for food, health, and environment.
