The Rodale Institute California Organic Center in Ventura County, California will serve farmers in this key geographical region by solving challenges, conducting regionally significant research, and serving as a hub for education & extension.

The California Organic Center is located on the McGrath Family Farm in Camarillo, owned by fifth-generation farmer Phil McGrath whose family has been farming fruits and vegetables in the Oxnard Plain since 1871.

McGrath Family Farm has always prioritized high quality organic produce with a focus on educating the public and farmers. “The world needs a wake-up call,” said McGrath. “We have to rethink the big picture now…. We need regenerative agriculture for our collective future.”
