The Helping Communities Grow program is sponsored by the Nutrients for Life Foundation. Founded in 2004, the Foundation provides science-based information to help educate people about the valuable role fertilizers play in feeding our growing world. All information developed by the Foundation is based on soil and plant science and supported by agronomists, including those at the International Plant Nutrition Institute. The Foundation’s curriculum, Nourishing the Planet in the 21st Century, was created by the respected Biological Sciences Curriculum Study (BSCS) in conjunction with educators around the world and has been reviewed by the Smithsonian Institution. The Nutrients for Life Foundation's Helping Communities Grow program gives FFA chapters the opportunity to help their communities become better informed about the positive role of plant nutrients, fertilizer and related agricultural issues.
