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 nearly 20 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.

Demo Stations include:
Farming Systems Trial (FST)
Vegetable Systems Trial (VST)
Industrial Hemp
High Tunnels and Grafted Tomatoes
Organic Vegetable Cropping
Pest Management
No-Till Management
Pastured Hog Production
Honey Bee Conservancy
Agriculture Supported Communities (ASC)
