Mission Statement

Our goal is to increase organic agricultural acreage in California through research and education that addresses industry needs.

Center Overview

The goal of the center is to establish a unique learning model that will develop research and innovation across disciplines, focusing on real-world issues that directly impact California’s $3.5 billion organic farmgate (more than $10 billion across over the California organic supply chain). The center will support transdisciplinary research and teaching opportunities in topics related to organic soils, plant nutrition, pest management, agricultural education, and marketing. The Center was established with a $5 million gift from the Grimm family with the explicit purpose of founding the center.
