Education Programs - Food, Land & People

FLP logoProject Food, Land & People, or FLP, is the latest national environmental education curriculum delivered through the soil and water conservation districts. Area educators attend 6-to-10-hour workshops and actively participate in hands-on, interdisciplinary lessons on topics connecting people, the land we live on and the food that sustains us.

The connections become obvious, vital links demonstrating the interdependency between healthy natural resources and a viable agricultural economy. Teachers and other adults who mold young minds take lesson plans, activities and other information back to students whose thoughts and actions will directly impact the future of our planet. FLP follows the new K-12 science competencies in the NC Standard Course of Study as set forth by the North American Association for Environmental Education.
