Who: Rodale Institute is widely recognized as a founder of the modern organic movement and has been a global leader in regenerative organic agriculture for over 70 years. Their pioneering work in Farming Systems Trials is the longest-running side-by-side comparison of organic and conventional grain cropping systems in North America. It demonstrates how soil health=healthy food=healthy people.
“At our core, we believe that Rodale Institute
is a human health organization,”
Jeff Tkach, Rodale Institute, Chief Impact Officer.
