Our Resources



Effective July 1, 2016: In order to continue providing quality, science-based resources to educators for free, we have implemented a flat-rate shipping fee of $5.00 per order of physical items. All digital resources will remain downloadable with no fee.

The Nutrients for Life Foundation’s crop nutrient and soil science resources are available for traditional school settings and large crop nutrient education opportunities. Educators outside of the U.S. and nontraditional educators (i.e. homeschools) may take advantage of digital resources, including downloadable curriculum and interactive lessons. If you would like to order for an event, email Shipment delivery date is based upon availability. Generally, resources take about three weeks to four weeks to arrive. Thank you for helping us make a difference! Check-out email addresses will be added to the Foundation's e-newsletter for teachers.
