Rodale Institute Urges Farmers, Families To Learn More About How To Grow Clean Water

The Kutztown-based
Rodale Institute, the global leader in regenerative organic agriculture, launched the “Grow Clean Water” initiative aimed at educating young families about the connection between farming practices and healthy rivers and streams.

The initiative, funded by the William Penn Foundation, is part of a larger project to reduce agricultural runoff in the Delaware River Watershed.

The Grow Clean Water campaign teaches families that supporting healthy farms, such as organic farms using practices like reduced tillage, crop rotation, and composting, can have a positive impact on both soil and clean water. 

The campaign educates families to look for the “Certified Organic” label to learn more about a farm’s practices.

Families that sign the pledge will receive a free pledge kit (valued at $15) containing an organic herb grow kit, recipes, informational poster & stickers, a reusable organic sandwich bag, a postcard to thank a local farmer, and more.

Families should visit GrowCleanWater.org to learn more about this important issue through educational videos and content, and pledge to support clean water.
