Field Day is your best opportunity to explore all our research firsthand.

At this all-day event, join Rodale Institute’s researchers and staff to learn the latest results of our research projects and visit demonstration stations on the farm. The day is “go at your own pace,” meaning you can spend as much time as you’d like at any station learning from experts.

Rodale Institute & Acres U.S.A. Field Day and Organic No-Till Intensive

June 15-16, 8 a.m. – 6 p.m.

Leading up to Field Day, we’re partnering with Acres U.S.A. to offer a two-day intensive. Attendees will learn in a focused, small-group environment, from Rodale Institute’s CEO Jeff Moyer and our team of researchers and farmers, about an organic farming system that limits tillage, reduces labor, and improves soil structure. With both classroom and in-the-field instruction, this intensive offers a look at the latest tools based on sound biological principles, making it possible to reduce and even eliminate tillage. Field-tested over many seasons, these methods will make cover crops a source of fertility and a tool for weed management in your operation.

Designed for: Organic farmers and conventional farmers who want to refine their no-till practices.

Price: Early bird (until June 5) and Organic Farmers Association members: $689. Regular admission (June 6.-July 1): $739.
Registration includes Field Day Admission.

Meals & lodging: Lunch will be served both days. You will need to arrange your own lodging.
