(Kutztown, Pennsylvania) Rodale Institute, a non-profit dedicated to pioneering organic farming through research and outreach, today announced the addition of new staff members to support the Institute’s implementation of replicable, farm-scale models of organic agricultural methods.

These models demonstrate best methods for integrating livestock and plant production, especially in the cycle of crop rotations where livestock play an important role. The models also serve as research opportunities where data can be collected and used to further develop best practices and improve organic methods.

The expansion includes the addition of five new positions including Farm Manager, Animal Husbandry Specialist, Compost Specialist, Seasonal Greenhouse Manager and Plant Production Specialist, and Marketing & Sales Specialist.

Executive Director of the Institute, “Coach” Mark Smallwood, said, “We carefully selected this team for their unique skills and experiences, but even more importantly because they live our mission of improving the health and well-being of people and the planet.””
