Join the J.I. Rodale Legacy

I grew up in Vermont with family farms, and my values connect deeply with Rodale’s focus on soil health and supporting farm systems that work in harmony with nature to improve the quality of our life. The interconnectedness of family, community and planet is not possible without a thriving organic agricultural movement that gives farmers dignity, sovereignty and economic security. Rodale’s work sits firmly on the side of a healthy, vibrant future for everyone.”
