Join us for a community screening of the documentary film Evolution of Organic in Rodale Institute’s theater, located next to the Rodale Institute Garden Store. Evolution of Organic, released in 2017, chronicles the organic movement in North America. Along the way, it introduces audiences to some of the driven characters who believed passionately in a better food system and ultimately helped set the organic movement in motion. Ticketholders will enjoy complimentary refreshments and have the opportunity to take a self-guided walking tour of the Rodale Institute farm. There is no fee for attending this event. A donation of $5 or $10 to Rodale Institute is suggested. Donations in any amount support Rodale Institute’s work conducting research on the benefits of organic, training new regenerative organic farmers, and communicating the advantages of organic for people and the planet.
