On Earth Day — Saturday, April 22, 2017 — Rodale Institute participated in the March for Science in Washington, D.C., a massive international demonstration in support for science-based policy and decision making.
In more than 600 cities around the world, organizations and individuals marched for science to defend its role in policy and society as critical to our health, economies, food security, and safety.
Rodale Institute joined marchers to inform people of the concern about federal funding, link ecology and the environment to agriculture and nutritious food, to show the economic value of science to our national Gross Domestic Product, and to make aware our support for research and science. At Rodale Institute, our research studies include Regenerative Organic Agriculture. This simple, effective, natural method of farming actually removes carbon from the atmosphere and puts it back into the soil through a process called carbon sequestration. This creates healthier soil, healthier food, and reduces (or even reverses) the impact of global warming. Learn more about how you can support research and science at Rodale Institute!
