2007 marks 60 years since J.I. Rodale founded The Rodale Institute to scientifically prove his philosophy of "Healthy Soil = Healthy Food = Healthy People."
To celebrate Rodale suggests the following to help improve your own health, and the health of the environment:
1. Visit the birthplace of organic farming in America - Rodale's 333-acre farm in Kutztown to learn more about organic gardening and how to create an organic garden yourself.
2. Find local farmers and purchase produce from them.
3. Read about what sustainable farmers are doing now.
4. Start an organic garden at your child's school.
