Our goal is to increase soil health literacy for children, teens, and adults around the world. The new middle school curriculum is designed to introduce young people to the magic of soil and the fascinating connection it has to the food we eat, our health and our climate.

This free middle school curriculum that we developed in partnership with Life Lab is designed to introduce young people to the magic of soil and the fascinating connection it has to the food we eat, our health and our climate. The 5-lesson curriculum, written to serve as supplemental material for the Next Generation Science Standards, teaches about the carbon cycle, photosynthesis, soil science, various agricultural practices, and concludes with a regenerative soil-based project. Our aim is to have this curriculum in every US state and translated for global distribution.
