Educators take advantage of this great opportunity

Where does food come from? The grocery store or the local deli? In our highly urbanized society today, the vast majority of our students have limited contact with agriculture and are alarmingly ignorant about the source of their most basic food.

In fact, the average person is now over four generations removed from a farm. That means our young people no longer go to Grandpa and Grandma's farm to visit the animals and ride the tractor.... the vast majority do not have relatives on the farm at all! 

Project Food, Land & People is a non-profit organization made up of volunteers from across United States, who are dedicated to teaching the next generation about agriculture. For the past 25 years FLP has been offering exciting, standards-based curriculum to classrooms across the country, educating students of all backgrounds in rural, suburban, and urban school settings. FLP produces lessons written by educators for educators, of the highest quality that are piloted in classrooms to measure and strengthen their impact. 

Learn more about this great opportunity to educate our youth AND earn continuing education credits.
