Rodale Organic Gardening Experimental Farm, also known as the Working Tree Center, is a historic home and farm located at Lynn Township, Lehigh County, Pennsylvania. The home is farmhouse dated to about 1830, and altered by J. I. Rodale (1898-1971) for his residence and work, 1940 to 1971. Other contributing buildings and structures pre-dating Rodale’s purchase in 1940, are the Pennsylvania bank barn, implement shed, corn crib, and chicken coop. Added by Rodale are the farm office and greenhouse (c. 1945), turkey / goose coop, tennis court, cabana and pool, and pavilion and the clapboard and fieldstone bake house. He also added the five garden sites: the cultivated gardens, the stone gardens, the Sir Albert Howard test plots, and the aerobic and anaerobic compost heaps. The farm is important in the history of organic gardening and farming in the 20th century.
