Education

The Project Food, Land & People Conceptual Framework serves as the skeletal structure to hold together seven comprehensive ideas from agricultural awareness to responsible food, land and people decision making for both today and the future. The framework outline, with its content subdivisions, identifies topics used by teachers and educators in creating FLP's instructional lessons.  

Project Food, Land & People (FLP) announces the availability of two instructional units
including 22 individual lessons through download ordering. See the Ordering link for details.

Available now are 13 lessons in a newly revised, updated and improved Garden Wise: Educating with a Garden unit.  Also available are the nine lessons that have been available by CD as FLP’s Eat Well, Be Well nutrition-based unit.
