SIDNEY — The Nutrients for Life Foundation awarded the Fairlawn FFA $250 for their participation in the Helping Communities Grow program.
Students in the FFA chapters developed and executed community-based education programs based upon the Nutrients for Life Foundation curriculum, nourishing the Planet in the 21st Century. This free curriculum, developed by the Biological Sciences Curriculum Study and reviewed by the Smithsonian Institution, provides field-tested, standards-based classroom activities to help tomorrow’s generation realize that the challenge of feeding our growing population can be solved with science.
The Helping Communities Grow chapter recognition program encouraged the Fairlawn FFA students to help the public become better informed about essential plant nutrients. During the project, students increased their knowledge of soil science and agricultural issues.
