NDFB - Committed to Education of our Future Generations
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 30 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.
Project FLP in North Dakota is supported by the ND Farm Bureau and the ND Department of Agriculture/Ag in the Classroom Program. Credit workshops for educators are held both online and face-to-face.
ü Classes provide 1- Professional Development credit from NDSU.
ü Cost for each class is a $50 registration and $50 for NDSU Credit Fee
ü Many scholarship opportunities are available to cover registration costs!
