Institute compost powers conversion of USDA’s new organic People’s Garden along National
Our 60 years of research show that organic farming is the single most significant and immediate step we can take to curtail the potentially devastating effects of global warming.
- Dr. Timothy LaSalle, Rodale Institute CEO
About the time that Chemical Ag spokespeople were chiding Michelle Obama for promoting home-grown organic food with her White House garden, compost from the Rodale Institute farm was landing on a new organic garden right in front of U.S. Department of Agriculture headquarters.
Despite some reported resistance from within the USDA to give organics such a high profile, Rodale Institute is confident that Secretary Vilsack is making a wise choice in demonstrating new options for American agriculture.
