Katie’s Crops (DEADLINE: FEBRUARY 28TH)
The Lexicon of Sustainability is seeking exemplary high school teachers to participate in a revolutionary new school program to promote environmental and food literacy through Project Localize. The program integrates learning with creativity and promotes community outreach. The goal is that future generations can teach America how to improve our food system, one town at a time. The Lexicon of Sustainability is based on a simple premise: people will live more sustainable lives if they are taught the basic terms and principles that define sustainability. Project Localize teaches students to create and share art that documents sustainable agriculture methods. The art is promoted in Pop Up Shows organized by students for the community. Selected teachers will collaborate on Project Localize and receive financial and mentoring support from the Lexicon of Sustainability. Nominate a teacher today!
