The famous Rodale Institute in Pennsylvania has been conducting groundbreaking research on regenerative organic agriculture for 75 years and has become a global leader in the organic movement. To reveal the scope of work they do at Rodale, we’re very honoured to have Chief Operating Officer, Dr. Andrew Smith, joining us via videoconference.
Dr. Andrew Smith oversees the research and farm operations at Rodale Institute and is passionate about growing the organic movement by providing science-based solutions to farmers and facilitating opportunities to expand the number of organic farmers and farmland across the globe.
Andrew has over twenty years of experience working in the organic industry as an agronomist, researcher, and farmer. While trained as an entomologist, his motive for entering the organic industry was to reduce the use of chemicals for food production that end up in our environment, food, and bodies. He now has the opportunity to support an amazing group of dedicated people working diligently on many projects to transform the food system and the way we farm to improve the lives and health of all people and the planet.
He also continues to live and work on his own organic family farm.
