For Regents Professor John Reganold, the best classroom is a farm and the best textbook is a handful of dirt. In a career spanning more than three decades, Reganold is regarded as an internationally renowned soil scientist and one of Washington State University's most beloved teachers. He founded the first organic agriculture major in the U.S. and the nation's largest certified organic teaching farm at WSU. Backed by academic research from more than a 1000 farms on four continents, John's bravely called upon students, scientists and policy makers to reimagine conventional farming in America. Training the next generation of sustainability leaders, with over 4000 undergraduate students in his classes to date -- John stands at the frontlines of an educational movement, determined to transition farmland away from toxic chemicals and the marks of erosion, toward healthy soils and sustainable, abundant harvests.
