Core Content and Lesson Information
Project Food, Land and People is a non-profit organization created in 1988 to develop and distribute a national K-12 curriculum to complement existing agricultural, environmental and natural resource conservation education programs. The goal of FLP is to provide educators with high quality, balanced and easily integrated classroom materials that deal with the complexity and interdependence of natural resources and people.
