Using a virtual farming app, interactive activities and hands-on lessons the students will explore important concepts, such as but not limited to:
- The simple planting of a seed starts a RIPPLE EFFECT that helps farm families, communities, countries and the world.

- To FEED THE WORLD in 2050, we will need to grow over 60% more food on the same amount of land
