Sponsor Soil Science Explore Boxes for a school


Celebrate World Soil Day on December 5th with Nutrients for Life.

Even though the soil may be frozen in most parts of Canada this World Soil Day, it is important to think and appreciate the soil beneath our feet. 95% of the food we consume comes from the soil. Now more than ever we need to protect and nourish the soil to help continue to feed the World's growing population responsibly. Sponsor a deserving classroom with one of our Soil Science Explore Boxes to help bring soils to life in their classroom!

These Soil Science Explore Boxes are geared for grades 7-12 classrooms from coast to coast to coast.

Some items may not look exactly as pictured

What's in the box?

Each box contains soil testing supplies to test a soil Nitrogen, Phosphorus , Potassium and pH levels (enough for 25 tests), a soil probe to collect samples from around the school or maybe a school garden, a sampling of soils from across the country, phosphate testing strips to test phosphates in water and a wide array of Nutrients for Life materials that focusses on soils, plant nutrients and 4R Nutrient Stewardship.

Our soil science explore box will come with a step-by-step guide to set up and run multiple stations to use these resources to engage students on soil science and its importance!
