The Rodale Institute
We’re excited to be part of the “Proud Supporter of Rodale Institute” program! In the program, the Rodale Institute is partnering with select brands to create products that support regenerative organic agriculture. Organic Mechanics is a natural proud supporter of The Rodale Institute for our focus on regenerative gardening and living soils for gardeners. The copious amounts of locally made compost, and worm castings helps build soil structure, which holds more carbon and water in soil. Win win!
