At the very heart of the Rodale Institute are farmers—stewards of the land, growers of soil, caretakers of our food.
Our research, programs and outreach are all centered on making it possible for the agricultural community to farm better. Featured in this section are farmer-to-farmer resources, how-to articles and personal stories that explain how to make organic farming profitable and build supportive communities.
Right now, we are in need of a few good farmers to come in from the field, grab an ice-cold drink and sit for a spell. Share what has you fired up—policy issues, your latest on-farm invention, new technique or variety you’re trying out, something in your production or marketing that has gone really well (or otherwise!), what you wish someone had told you before you [fill in the blank], or simply your story of starting up—what got you interested in farming.
The aim is to open farmer-to-farmer info sharing by featuring your stories, your thoughts, your success and your challenges so growers can learn from each other.
Consider it your virtual winter conference available all year round.
We know there’s more work to be done than hours in a day, so we even welcome single “guest-blogger” posts. Add your name to the roster by contacting Amanda Kimble-Evans at 610-683-1475 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
