Rodale Institute's Organic Pioneer Awards

You’re invited! Join us for the annual Organic Pioneer Awards Fundraising Dinner, a celebration of changemakers in the organic industry. Each year we honor three individuals—a farmer, a scientist, and a businessperson— who have significantly impacted the organic movement with their work. It’s an inspiring opportunity to celebrate the power of regenerative organic agriculture, and we hope to see you there!

What? A full day of celebrations starting with an afternoon tour of Rodale Institute and an alfresco lunch. Explore the farm in a small group setting with our expert staff members and get a glimpse into our cutting-edge research.Later, enjoy an elegant dinner sourced straight from the farm. Purchase tickets for both programs or attend just one. For the dinner portion, we’ll gather in our historic bank barn for a delicious meal and hear directly from this year’s awardees as they reflect on their accomplishments and the past, present, and future of the organic movement.

Where? Rodale Institute, 611 Siegfriedale Rd., Kutztown, PA 19530

How? Tickets are available for groups, couples, and individuals with the option to purchase passes for both the daytime and evening portions or just one. For those who can’t attend—or anyone who wishes to extend a personal note to this year’s awardees—purchase and customize a “tribute” note to be included in the evening program.

Why? Please join us and other supporters of the movement as we celebrate everything we’ve achieved and toast to the work of these outstanding individuals.

Daytime Programming: We know that for many, the true appeal of Rodale Institute is our stunning educational campus, and learning more about our research. For those who have more time, we invite you to join in additional daytime programming. Learn more about the Daytime Programming.
