Good Pine Middle third graders from Teacher Heather Spence’s class plant sunflower seeds as part of a station for Nutrien’s Seed Survivor display last week at the school. The students also participated in a fossil find station, on the farm station and several other interactive displays. Seed Survivor is a free, curriculum-based learning experience that encourages children in elementary school to master the elements that plants need to grow that includes interactive displays involving water, light, soil, nutrients and food. Students had the opportunity to compete as virtual farmers, design a garden, and even plant a seed to take home and grow. The exhibit was developed in Canada in 2005 and tours North America year-round. Lindsey Verhaeghe, Nutrien’s Sustainability Initiatives and Reporting Manager, said, “We want children to grow up to be healthy eaters, to be interested in agriculture and to understand where their food comes from.” Nutrien is the world’s largest provider of crop inputs and services and plays a critical role in helping growers increase food production in a sustainable manner.
