In 2004, seven fertilizer industry leaders came together to form the Nutrients for Life Foundation. The Foundation’s mission is to educate and inform the public about plant nutrients and their role in feeding the world.
In 2007 the Foundation published Nourishing the Planet in the 21st Century (high school and middle school) curriculum. This complimentary duo of soil science lessons was quickly embraced by the science teacher community. An elementary version was added in 2011, and all three have been reviewed by the Smithsonian Institution.
In 2009 the Foundation recognized the need for boots on the ground and hired its first regional representative in Florida. Since that time, the Foundation has added representation in California, Colorado, Idaho, Illinois, Iowa and Washington.
Nutrients for Life has international chapters in Canada, Colombia and Mexico.
Today, the Foundation boasts individual members from all over the world and is firmly committed to developing a variety of resources and initiatives to educate the public on the vital role plant nutrients plays in all our lives.
