2018 Organic Field Day

Rodale Institute

Event Description:

Join Rodale Institute's researchers and staff to learn the latest results of our research projects and visit demonstration stations on our 333-acre experimental farm. Participants will have the opportunity to interact one-on-one with Rodale Institute experts and learn about a wide variety of research and demonstration projects, all focused on organic agriculture.

Stations will be set up throughout the farm, so you’ll have the opportunity to explore our 333-acre living laboratory by walking or enjoying a leisurely wagon ride from site-to-site.

Go at your own pace: if you’re interested in one particular area, we invite you to spend more time with our expert at that site, asking questions and sharing knowledge.

Agriculture Supported Communities (ASC)
Farming Systems Trial (FST)
High Tunnels and Grafted Tomatoes
Honey Bee Conservancy
Industrial Hemp
No-Till Management
Organic Apple Orchard
Organic Onions: Managing Allium Leafminer & Soil
