Farming for the Future
Grades: High School
Subject Area: STEM, Environmental Science, Social Studies
Introduce your students to the concept of sustainable nutrition — food that promotes good health and a healthy environment — with help from the dairy farmers of the American Dairy Association North East. Students research how farmers are meeting the need to increase food production while reducing impacts on the environment, learn how dairy farmers combine sustainable farming practices to protect the environment, and explore the many STEM-based career paths open to them in agriculture.
