Rodale Institute

Rodale Institute is a nonprofit dedicated to growing the regenerative organic agriculture movement through rigorous research, farmer training, and education. Our groundbreaking science and direct farmer-support programs serve as a catalyst for change in farming and food production worldwide. Over our 75-year history, we have proven that organic farming is not only viable, but essential to humanity’s survival.

Rodale Institute confronts one of the world’s greatest challenges: creating a resilient global food system that improves human health and the environment. Our mission is to advance groundbreaking research and best-in-class education that enables farms and farmers to transition to regenerative organic agricultural practices, thereby improving the health of the world’s soil and securing the global food supply.

Rodale Institute envisions a changed world where agricultural products are produced in a regenerative organic manner and the metrics of success are measured against the health of people and the planet.
