Rodale Institute Volunteers

Would you like to work in a cutting-edge garden?

Rodale Institute is offering volunteer opportunities at the gardens and farm in Kutztown, PA.

Recognized for work in organic farming, global warming and nutrition research, Rodale offers workshops, courses, festivals and plant sales. It is well-known throughout the world advocating for policies that support farmers, and educating consumers about how going organic is the healthiest option for people and the planet.

According to Megan L. Kintzer, Director of Development, “We host volunteers on our farm place every Thursday starting at 9:00 am and lasting until the early afternoon. We meet at the Rodale Institute Visitors Center and Store - here is a link for directions:

“We have jobs for everyone, including:

- Feeding our new batch of chickens

- Getting your hands dirty in our gardens and greenhouse

- "Inside jobs" like stuffing mailings or assembling press kits

- Harvesting delicious fruits and veggies”

“Because our volunteer needs vary each week, it is always be a new adventure, but on Volunteer Days our staff members are on hand to work with our volunteers and provide the best learning experience possible.”

To volunteer contact Megan by email or by phone (610) 683-1443

What and exciting place to volunteer!

(I will be away until next week – sort of spring break. I hope you have a lovely holiday. )
