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.

Piers Park Sailing Center

Piers Park Sailing Center (PPSC) was founded March 10, 1998 as an integral part of Piers Park, an open community green space on the East Boston Waterfront. PPSC’s docks and building were constructed by the Massachusetts Port Authority and are ADA compliant at all points of the tide cycle. We are a community based organization – our Board Chair and 100% of our leadership staff grew up in our programs as youth.

For the last two decades PPSC has been providing unique educational opportunities for youth and adults, and serving as a gateway to the harbor and its islands.

Eastie Farm

We began by transforming an overgrown, abandoned lot on Sumner Street into a thriving urban oasis. It’s now a place where people relax, enjoy nature, grow food together, share a meal together, make music, pick up their CSA, or attend a comedy event. Volunteers learn about gardening, rainwater conservation, food waste management, and other eco-conscious practices, all while getting to know their neighbors and having fun. We now own two sites (one of which has a first-of-its-kind geo-thermally powered greenhouse), operate five others, offer experiential and informal environmental education programs for school children, train teenagers for green jobs, and bring local fresh food to neighbors of all economic levels.

Theodore Payne Foundation

Theodore Payne Foundation for Wild Flowers & Native Plants is a force for change in Southern California. While we preserve the legacy and carry on the work of Theodore Payne — a pioneering Los Angeles nurseryman, horticulturist, and educator who was passionate about the native plants of California — our goal is to transform our region into sustainable, healthy communities. We do this by educating all people about the role native plants play in the local ecology, their place in our gardens, and how everyone can take part in making Southern California more life sustaining.
