Connecticut Project Food, Land, and People
Project Food, Land and People provides educational support to formal and informal educators on the scope of agriculture and use of natural resources to provide for our needs. Through understanding of how we use resources and the diversity of products provided, we gain understanding of our decisions to conserve and provide for the future. Educational materials help open discussion for classrooms on food systems, sustainability, science of food, soils, and plant science, land and human interactions, making us part of the food web and ecosystems on Earth.
