Mission Statement

The mission of the Foundation for Archaeobotanical Research in Microfossils is to foster research in the field of archaeobotany.

Vision

The FARM was founded with the goal of creating a center for archaeobotanical training and research that will be a permanent resource for archaeobotanists. The FARM is an independent, registered nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization that is not directly attached to any other entity or bureaucracy. This independence allows for a flexibility in implementation of concepts and methods that promotes innovation and creativity in a low-risk environment, thus advancing the field.

Goals

1. To create a physical laboratory workspace in which archaeobotanical researchers can have access to state of the art equipment, training, and peer consultation.

2. To share information with the global archaeobotanical community via a virtual community and website that is freely accessible to all who seek access.
