Tony Lovell will explain the reasoning behind how more green growing plants means more captured carbon dioxide = more water = more production = more biodiversity = more profit. Did you know that a 1% change in soil organic matter across just one-quarter of the World's land area could sequester 300 billion tonnes of physical CO2.
When Rodale Institute moved to their current location in 1973, Bob Rodale envisioned a farm that would become the epicenter of the organic movement. On our certified organic farm, they have a diverse operation including compost, livestock, vegetables production, compost, greenhouses, small grains, gardens and 1100 certified organic apple trees.
Eating organic is all the rage these days - but could it actually help save the planet from climate devastation? As the reality of global climate change continues to sink in - scientists - activists - and lawmakers all across the world are working to find new ways to fight back against greenhouse gas emissions before it's too late.
