HyperLink For Immediate Release: Contact: Amy Guevara July 13, 2015 (386) 562-0718 Nutrients for Life Foundation Announces Winners of Florida Helping Communities Grow Chapter Recognition Fort White Junior FFA Takes First Place Award Honors, Lincoln Middle FFA Wins Second and Charlotte Senior FFA Wins Third Place Washington, DC – The Fort White Junior FFA chapter won the Nutrients for Life Foundation’s 2014-15 Helping Communities Grow program in the state of Florida. The FFA chapter wins $3,000 for investigating and discovering the critical role fertilizer and soil nutrients play in improving plant health for an abundant, affordable and safe food supply. FFA members designed and completed a research project to discover whether a growing system that utilizes the 4R Nutrient Stewardship Management System improves collard green production. After completion of the research project, the Fort White FFA educated and informed the local community about the benefits of fertilizer through student lead tours of the school greenhouse, land lab and an open house at 5th Generation Farms. Through these tours, community members were able to see how the FFA members have implemented nutrient stewardship practices. FFA members demonstrated how fertilizer supports the photosynthesis process, the collard green experiment and their hydroponic greenhouse. “I am so impressed with these hard-working, knowledgeable, and creative students. The projects submitted to the Helping Communities Grow FFA chapter competition in Florida were outstanding,” said Nutrients for Life Foundation Executive Director Harriet Wegmeyer. “Not only did each chapter submit a project that educated their community about the important role of fertilizer, they expanded their leadership ability, communications skills and knowledge base during the year-long projects.” The Lincoln Middle FFA chapter wins second prize and a $2,000 award for hosting the second annual Helping Communities Grow Garden Gala. At the Gala, FFA members gave demonstrations on how to use EarthBoxes® and a tour of their school garden. The garden tour was especially interesting as community members were able to see the FFA chapter’s corn experiments. A second component of their outreach was a partnership with a local retirement community where FFA members worked side by side with residents to plant vegetables and flowers in EarthBoxes®. Kimberly Lough, FFA Advisor, said, “Personally, my reward is empowering students to produce food for themselves and others. The garden holds their attention more so than any other classroom lesson.” The Charlotte Senior FFA chapter wins third prize and an award of $1,000 for their participation in Agriculture Venture Day. Utilizing a soil separator chart and a magnifying glass, elementary students separated soil samples and learned about soil nutrients, availability and sources. Through this exercise they were able to talk about the different components of soil, including nitrogen, phosphorus and potassium. The third graders also learned about phosphate formation, mining phosphate and how it is used in our everyday lives. Students in participating FFA chapters developed and executed community-based education programs based upon the Nutrients for Life Foundation curriculum, Nourishing the Planet in the 21st Century. This free curriculum, developed by the Biological Sciences Curriculum Study and reviewed by the Smithsonian Institution, provides field-tested, standards-based classroom activities to help tomorrow's generation realize that the challenge of feeding our growing population can be solved with science. The Helping Communities Grow chapter recognition program encouraged FFA students to help the public become better informed about essential plant nutrients. During the project, students gained skills in leadership, public speaking, team building and community awareness while increasing knowledge of soil science and agricultural issues. FFA chapters who entered qualifying projects but did not win the top three awards each received $250 for their participation. The Nutrients for Life Foundation informs the public of the role of nutrients in both the production of nutritious, abundant food and preservation of healthy green spaces through the development of science-based educational resources and an outreach campaign to people across the country. The FFA mission is to make a positive difference in the lives of students by developing their potential for premier leadership, personal growth, and career success through agricultural education.
